Psalms Chapters 90 & 91
Psalms Chapter 90
1: LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
2: Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
3: Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
4: For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
5: Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
6: In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
7: For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
8: Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
9: For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
10: The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11: Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
12: So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
13: Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
14: O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15: Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.
16: Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.
17: And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
Psalms Chapter 91
1: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2: I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3: Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4: He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5: Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6: Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7: A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8: Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9: Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10: There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11: For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12: They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13: Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14: Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15: He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16: With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
