Psalm 91

Psalm 91:1
91:1 He that dwelleth in the {a} secret place of the most High
     shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

     (a) He who makes God his defence and trust will perceive
         his protection to be a most sure safeguard.

Psalm 91:2
91:2 {b} I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my
     fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

     (b) Being assured of this protection, he prays to the Lord.

Psalm 91:3
91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the {c} snare of the
     fowler, [and] from the noisome pestilence.

     (c) That is, God's help is most ready for us, whether Satan
         assails us secretly which he calls a snare, or openly
         which is here meant by the pestilence.

Psalm 91:4
91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings
     shalt thou trust: his {d} truth [shall be thy] shield and
     buckler.

     (d) That is, his faithful keeping of promises to help you in
         your need.

Psalm 91:5
91:5 {e} Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor]
     for the arrow [that] flieth by day;

     (e) The care that God has over his is sufficient to defend
         them from all dangers.

Psalm 91:8
91:8 Only with thine {f} eyes shalt thou behold and see the
     reward of the wicked.

     (f) The godly will have some experience of God's judgements
         against the wicked even in this life, but they will see
         it fully at that day when all things will be revealed.

Psalm 91:11
91:11 {g} For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep
      thee in all thy ways.

      (g) God has not appointed one angel to every man, but many
          to be ministers of his providence to keep and defend
          his in their calling, which is the way to walk in
          without tempting God.

Psalm 91:13
91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the {h} young
      lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

      (h) You will not only be preserved from all evil, but
          overcome it whether it is secret or open.

Psalm 91:14
91:14 {i} 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.

      (i) To assure the faithful of God's protection, he brings
          in God to confirm the same.

Psalm 91:16
91:16 With {k} long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my
      salvation.

      (k) For he is content with that life that God gives for by
          death the shortness of this life is recompensed with
          immortality.
