Psalms 91:9-16


91:9 For you have taken refuge in the Lord,

my shelter, the sovereign One. 1 

91:10 No harm will overtake 2  you;

no illness 3  will come near your home. 4 

91:11 For he will order his angels 5 

to protect you in all you do. 6 

91:12 They will lift you up in their hands,

so you will not slip and fall on a stone. 7 

91:13 You will subdue 8  a lion and a snake; 9 

you will trample underfoot a young lion and a serpent.

91:14 The Lord says, 10 

“Because he is devoted to me, I will deliver him;

I will protect him 11  because he is loyal to me. 12 

91:15 When he calls out to me, I will answer him.

I will be with him when he is in trouble;

I will rescue him and bring him honor.

91:16 I will satisfy him with long life, 13 

and will let him see my salvation.
