Bible Passage

91:1 As for you, the one who lives in the shelter of the Most High,

and resides in the protective shadow of the Sovereign One

2 I say this about the Lord, my shelter and my stronghold,

my God in whom I trust

3 he will certainly rescue you from the snare of the hunter

and from the destructive plague.

4 He will shelter you with his wings;

you will find safety under his wings.

His faithfulness is like a shield or a protective wall.

5 You need not fear the terrors of the night,

the arrow that flies by day,

6 the plague that stalks in the darkness,

or the disease that ravages at noon.

7 Though a thousand may fall beside you,

and a multitude on your right side,

it will not reach you.

8 Certainly you will see it with your very own eyes

you will see the wicked paid back.

9 For you have taken refuge in the Lord,

my shelter, the Most High.

10 No harm will overtake you;

no illness will come near your home.

11 For he will order his angels

to protect you in all you do.

12 They will lift you up in their hands,

so you will not slip and fall on a stone.

13 You will subdue a lion and a snake;

you will trample underfoot a young lion and a serpent.

14 The Lord says,

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

I will protect him because he is loyal to me.

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.

16 I will satisfy him with long life

and will let him see my salvation.”

92:1 A psalm; a song for the Sabbath day.

It is fitting to thank the Lord,

and to sing praises to your name, O Most High.

2 It is fitting to proclaim your loyal love in the morning

and your faithfulness during the night,

3 to the accompaniment of a ten-stringed instrument and a lyre,

to the accompaniment of the meditative tone of the harp.

4 For you, O Lord, have made me happy by your work.

I will sing for joy because of what you have done.

5 How great are your works, O Lord!

Your plans are very intricate!

6 The spiritually insensitive do not recognize this;

the fool does not understand this.

7 When the wicked sprout up like grass,

and all the evildoers glisten,

it is so that they may be annihilated.

8 But you, O Lord, reign forever.

9 Indeed, look at your enemies, O Lord.

Indeed, look at how your enemies perish.

All the evildoers are scattered.

10 You exalt my horn like that of a wild ox.

I am covered with fresh oil.

11 I gloat in triumph over those who tried to ambush me;

I hear the defeated cries of the evil foes who attacked me.

12 The godly grow like a palm tree;

they grow high like a cedar in Lebanon.

13 Planted in the Lord’s house,

they grow in the courts of our God.

14 They bear fruit even when they are old;

they are filled with vitality and have many leaves.

15 So they proclaim that the Lord, my Protector,

is just and never unfair.

93:1 The Lord reigns.

He is robed in majesty.

The Lord is robed;

he wears strength around his waist.

Indeed, the world is established; it cannot be moved.

2 Your throne has been secure from ancient times;

you have always been king.

3 The waves roar, O Lord,

the waves roar,

the waves roar and crash.

4 Above the sound of the surging water,

and the mighty waves of the sea,

the Lord sits enthroned in majesty.

5 The rules you set down are completely reliable.

Holiness aptly adorns your house, O Lord, forever.
