Composed for godly worshipers at the temple, Psalm 91 assures those who dwell "in the shelter of the Most High" (v. 1) that they need never be afraid (st. 1); the LORD will be their sure refuge from all enemies and dangers (st. 2). Though thousands perish around them, God's people will be safe (st. 3). God charges the angels to keep his people from harm (st. 4): I will keep you safe because you trust in me (st. 5). Satan applied verses 11 and 12 specifically to Jesus when he was being tempted in the wilderness, but the psalm is appropriate for all who confess, “The LORD . . . ‘is my refuge and my fortress’” (v. 2). Calvin Seerveld (PHH 22) versified this psalm in 1985 for the Psalter Hymnal.
Traditional for New Year celebrations. As a psalm of trust in the Lord's care and keeping, it has many applications in Christian worship.
