Amplified Bible

Psalm 91

Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.

1He who [a]dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”

For He will save you from the trap of the fowler,
And from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions,
And under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.


You will not be afraid of the terror of night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But danger will not come near you.

You will only [be a spectator as you] look on with your eyes
And witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as you watch safely from the shelter of the Most High].

Because you have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 
No evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your tent.

11 
For He will command His angels in regard to you,
To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service].
12 
They will lift you up in their hands,
So that you do not [even] strike your foot against a stone.
13 
You will tread upon the lion and cobra;
The young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

14 
“Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him;
I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name [he confidently trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].
15 
“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16 
“With a long life I will satisfy him
And I will let him see My salvation.”

Psalms 91

Псалом 91

1Псалом. Песнь на празднование субботы.

2Хорошо славить Господа

и воспевать имя Твое, Всевышний,

3возглашать милость Твою утром

и верность Твою вечером,

4играть на десятиструнной лире

и на мелодичной арфе.

5Ведь Ты, Господи, обрадовал меня Своими деяниями;

я ликую о делах Твоих рук.

6Господи, как велики Твои дела,

и как глубоки Твои помышления!

7Глупый человек не знает,

и невежда не понимает их.

8Хотя нечестивые возникают, как трава,

и злодеи процветают,

они исчезнут навеки.

9Ты же, Господи, навеки превознесен!

10Подлинно враги Твои, Господи,

подлинно враги Твои погибнут;

все злодеи будут рассеяны.

11А мой рог[a] Ты вознесешь, подобно рогу быка,

и умастишь меня свежим маслом.

12Глаза мои видели поражение врагов моих,

и уши мои слышали падение злодеев, восстающих на меня.

13А праведник цветет, словно пальма,

возвышается, как кедр на Ливане.

14Посаженные в доме Господнем,

они зацветут во дворах храма нашего Бога.

15Они и в старости будут плодовиты,

сочны и свежи,

16чтобы возвещать, что праведен Господь, скала моя,

и нет в Нем неправды.
