Psalm 91


The one who lives under the protection of the Most High

dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.r

I will say* concerning the Lord, who is my refuge and my fortress,

my God in whom I trust:s

He himself will rescue you from the bird trap,t

from the destructive plague.

He will cover you with his feathers;

you will take refuge under his wings.u

His faithfulness will be a protective shield.v

You will not fear the terror of the night,

the arrow that flies by day,w

the plague that stalks in darkness,

or the pestilence that ravages at noon.x

Though a thousand fall at your side

and ten thousand at your right hand,

the pestilence will not reach you.y

You will only see it with your eyes

and witness the punishment of the wicked.z

Because you have made the Lord—my refuge,aa

the Most High—your dwelling place,ab

10 no harm will come to you;

no plague will come near your tent.a

11 For he will give his angels orders concerning you,

to protect you in all your ways.b

12 They will support you with their hands

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.c

13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;

you will trample the young lion and the serpent.d

14 Because he has his heart set on me,

I will deliver him;

I will protect him because he knows my name.e

15 When he calls out to me, I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble.

I will rescue him and give him honor.f

16 I will satisfy him with a long lifeg

and show him my salvation.h


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
