Psalms 91

Morgan's Exposition on the Whole BibleMorgan's Exposition

Verses 1-16

This psalm is one of the greatest possessions of the saints. It is a great song of the safety of such as put their trust in Jehovah, and contains the Divine assurance of such faith as fruitful. Very little of exposition is necessary. There is a change in the use of pronouns from first to second to third at the close; which, although it has created some sense of difficulty, is yet a key to the psalm for purposes analysis.

Let us set out the scheme of the psalm round these changes, leaving its familiar words to speak for themselves. Verse Psa 91:1 The statement of truth Verse Psa 91:2 Personal affirmation of realisation Verses Psa 91:3-8 The address of the singer, either to his own soul, or to some other person, or to the nation, in which he affirms the convictions resulting from personal realisation of the truth.

Verse Psalms 91:9 a Repetition of personal realisation Verses Psalms 91:9-13; Psalms 91:9-13 Same as verses Psa 91:3-8

Verses Psa 91:14-15 Conclusion of psalm, in which the singer with holy boldness expresses as in the words of Jehovah, the safety of the trusting soul, and thus gives the testimony of God as well as that of man to the truth.
