Psalm 91

According to 91:3-6 and 91:13, what threatens the security of the believer, even those who take refuge in God? Is the godly believer protected from calamity and sorrow, or is he promised God's presence amidst terrible circumstances? Explain your answer from the passage. What is the basis for the psalmist's assurance that he will be safe and secure (91:9-12, 14-15)? In this psalm, what does "my [God's] salvation" (91:16) look like? How can you make God your dwelling place, your refuge, and your shield in times of trouble?
