The state of the godly.
Psalms 91:1 Who so dwelleth vnder the defence of the most hyest, & abydeth vnder the shadowe of the almightye. Psalms 91:2 He shal say vnto the Lorde: O my hope, and my strong holde, my God, in whome I will trust.
Psalms 91:3 For he shall delyuer the from the snare of the hunter, and from the noysome pestylence. Psalms 91:4 He shall couer the vnder hys wynges, that thou mayest be safe vnder his fethers: his faythfulnesse & trueth shalbe thy shylde and buckler. Psalms 91:5 So that thou shalt not nede to be afrayed for any bugges by night, nor for the arrowe that flyeth by daye. Psalms 91:6 For the pestilence that crepeth in þe darkenesse, nor for the sikenesse that destroyeth in the noone daye. Psalms 91:7 A thousande shall fall beside the, and ten thousande at thy righthande, but it shall not come nye the.

Their friend, with the effects of them all.
Psalms 91:14 Because he hath set his loue vppon me, I shall deliuer hym: I shal defende him, for he hath knowen my name.

Psalms 91:16 With longe lyfe will I satisfye him, and shewe hym my saluacion.
