Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16 – I Will Answer Them


Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16

1You who live in the shelter of the Most High,

who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,

2will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress;

my God, in whom I trust.”

9Because you have made the LORD your refuge,

the Most High your dwelling place,

10no evil shall befall you,

no scourge come near your tent.

11For he will command his angels concerning you

to guard you in all your ways.

12On their hands they will bear you up,

so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.

13You will tread on the lion and the adder,

the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

14Those who love me, I will deliver;

I will protect those who know my name.

15When they call to me, I will answer them;

I will be with them in trouble,

I will rescue them and honor them.

16With long life I will satisfy them,

and show them my salvation.
