THIRD SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST – PSALM 91:1-10

1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

2I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.”

3For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler

and from the deadly pestilence.

4He will cover you with his pinions,

and under his wings you will find refuge;

his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

5You will not fear the terror of the night,

nor the arrow that flies by day,

6nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

7A thousand may fall at your side,

ten thousand at your right hand,

but it will not come near you.

 

8You will only look with your eyes

and see the recompense of the wicked.

9Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—

the Most High, who is my refuge—

10no evil shall be allowed to befall you,

no plague come near your tent.
