Psalm 91

Whoso dwelleth under the defence of the Most High,
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say unto
the Lord, Thou art my hope, and my stronghold, my God; in
him will I trust. For he shall deliver thee from the snare of
the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall defend
thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe under his
feathers; his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and
buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, nor

eyes shalt thou behold, and see the reward of the ungodly.
For thou, Lord, art my hope; thou hast set thine house of defence
very high. There shall no evil happen unto thee, neither
shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall
give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt not thy
foot against a stone. Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder;

With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.

Glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be.
World without end.
