Psalm 91. Qui habitat.
WHOSO dwelleth under the defence of the Most High, * shall abide
under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say unto the LORD, Thou art my hope, and my stronghold;
* my God, in him will I trust.
3 For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, * and
from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall defend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe
under his feathers; * his faithfulness and truth shall be thy
shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, * nor for
the arrow that flieth by day;
6 For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, * nor for the
sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day.
7 A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy
right hand; * but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold, * and see the reward
of the ungodly.
9 For thou, LORD, art my hope; * thou hast set thine house of
defence very high.
10 There shall no evil happen unto thee, * neither shall any
plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, * to keep thee
in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee in their hands, * that thou hurt not
thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder: * the young lion and
the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver
him; * I will set him up, because he hath known my Name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will hear him; * yea, I am with
him in trouble; I will deliver him, and bring him to honour.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, * and show him my salvation.
