Psalm 91

Psalm 91 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.


He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,

My God, in whom I trust!”

For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper

And from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with His pinions,

And under His wings you may seek refuge;

His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.

You will not be afraid of the terror by night,

Or of the arrow that flies by day;

Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at your side

And ten thousand at your right hand,

But it shall not approach you.

You will only look on with your eyes

And see the recompense of the wicked.

For you have made the Lord, my refuge,

Even the Most High, your dwelling place.

10 No evil will befall you,

Nor will any plague come near your tent.

11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you,

To guard you in all your ways.

12 They will bear you up in their hands,

That you do not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra,

The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.

14 “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;

I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.

15 “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble;

I will rescue him and honor him.

16 “With a long life I will satisfy him

And let him see My salvation.”

Psalm 91

This is known as the Warrior’s Psalm.


Repeating words/phrases:



I (referring to the Lord)







pivotal conjunction: but

absolute words: no, any, all


Print out the Scripture and mark so that you can


In verse 1 what does it mean to ‘dwell in the shelter of the Most High’ and ‘abide in the shadow of the Almighty’? How are the verbs different? Are they synonyms? Are the titles the same? (Use to help.)


The psalmist claims God to be-

My ________________________ vs. 2

My ________________________ vs. 2

My ________________________ vs. 2

My ________________________ vs. 9

My ___________________   ___________________ vs. 9


How is trust key when you’re in a battle?


How is putting trust in the Lord (vs. 2) related to not being afraid in vs. 5. Read Psalm 121 for more insight.


What imagery does David use in verse 4?



Do a word study on the words fear and afraid. How are they related? When is fear appropriate? When is it inappropriate? Franklin Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Is that biblical? Are we to fear fear?


In verses 3, 5 & 6, what are the things He promises protection from?


In verse 7 it says, “a thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not approach you.” What does that mean? My right hand seems awfully close to me-


Describe an instance when you experienced His angels charge and guard over you. (Vs. 11)


There are several promises here-key word=will (some verses have more than one)

Vs. 1

Vs. 4

Vs. 5

Vs. 7

Vs. 8

Vs 10

Vs 11

Vs 12

Vs. 13

Vs 14

Vs 15

Vs 16


What is the promise given in verse 16? What does it mean to ‘see My salvation’?

I had it going on—or so I thought. After surviving sixty-three months of pregnancy, countless sleepless nights, and 35,000+ diapers, this one-time control freak encountered God’s grace. And I’m here to encourage you to do the same! I love encouraging and inspiring moms to grow deeper in their walk and relationship with our Heavenly Father.

I’ve been married to my beloved, Davis, since 1986; our life has been a roller-coaster ride, with God at the controls. We have seven kids and let me tell you our family loves to laugh! I enjoy playing in the dirt, eating dark chocolate, and walking on the beach. I’m an author and speaker and I am passionate about helping moms not only survive motherhood, but draw near to the Father and thrive in motherhood.

I’m so glad you’re here.
