Psalm 91

The Shadow of Your Wings

The General Principle

One who lives in the shelter of the Most High
    will stay in the shadow of the Almighty.

Application to Oneself

I will say to the Lord,
“My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”

Application to Others

Surely he will rescue you from the fowler’s trap,
from the destructive plague.
With his feathers he will cover you,
and under his wings you will find refuge.
His truth will be your shield and armor.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the plague that prowls in the darkness,
nor the pestilence that destroys at noon.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe it with your eyes.
You will see the punishment of the wicked.

Application to Oneself

Yes, you, Lord, are my refuge!

Application to Others

If you make the Most High your shelter,
10 evil will not overtake you.
Disaster will not come near your tent.
11 Yes, he will give a command to his angels concerning you,
    to guard you in all your ways.
12 They will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra.
You will trample the young lion and the serpent.

God’s Promise of Delivery

14 The Lord says, [1]
Because he clings to me, I will rescue him.
I will protect him, because he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him.
I will be with him in distress.
I will deliver him and I will honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
and I will let him see my salvation.


  1. Psalm 91:14 The words the Lord says are added to make it clear who is speaking.
