My Refuge and My Fortress
1He who dwells in #See Ps. 32:7 the shelter of the Most High
will abide in #Ps. 121:5; [Isa. 25:4; 32:2]the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say#91:2 Septuagint He will say to the Lord, “My #ver. 9; See Ps. 14:6 refuge and my #See Ps. 18:2 fortress,
my God, in whom I #See Ps. 11:1trust.”
3For he will deliver you from #Ps. 124:7; 140:5; 141:9; Prov. 6:5the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4He will #[1 Kgs. 8:7] cover you with his pinions,
and under his #See Ps. 17:8 wings you will #Ps. 57:1 find refuge;
his #See Ps. 36:5 faithfulness is #See Ps. 35:2a shield and buckler.
Prov. 3:23; Isa. 43:1; See Job 5:19-23 You will not fear #Song 3:8the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8You will only look with your eyes
and #See Ps. 37:34see the recompense of the wicked.
9Because you have made the Lord your #See Ps. 71:3 dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my #[See ver. 2 above]refuge#91:9 Or For you, O Lord, are my refuge! You have made the Most High your dwelling place—
10 # [ver. 5]; See Prov. 12:21 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
11 # Cited Matt. 4:6; Luke 4:10, 11 For he will command his #See Ps. 34:7 angels concerning you
to #Ex. 23:20guard you in all your ways.
12On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you #Prov. 3:23; [Ps. 37:24]strike your foot against a stone.
13You will tread on #[Dan. 6:23] the lion and the #[Acts 28:5] adder;
the young lion and #See Ps. 74:13 the serpent you will #Luke 10:19; [Mark 16:18]trample underfoot.
14“Because he #Deut. 7:7; 10:15 holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he #Ps. 9:10knows my name.
15When he #Job 12:4; See Ps. 50:15 calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and #1 Sam. 2:30; John 12:26honor him.
16With #Ps. 21:4; Deut. 6:2; 1 Kgs. 3:14; Prov. 3:2, 16 long life I will satisfy him
and #Ps. 50:23; [Ps. 118:14, 21]show him my salvation.”
