A Psalm
Atom Bomb For Those Facing War Atom Bomb
(The following is not a translation or exact paraphrase but is based upon Psalms 91. )

    You who choose to live close to the most High God will live under the protection of the Almighty (the One who has all power).  You can truly say, "He is my strong fortress; my personal God, in Him will I trust."

    You can be assured that He shall deliver you from the booby traps of the enemy and from the destructive chemical agents such as VX nerve agents and mustard gas.

    He shall place His umbrella of protection over you.  There, you can trust Him.  His true Word shall be a shield to you and a protective covering for you.

    With Him protecting you, you don't have to be afraid of the rockets that light up the night's sky or the missiles that are fired during the day.

    You don't have to fear the biological weapons of anthrax, botulinum toxin, smallpox, aflatoxin, and ricin that lurk in darkness or the nuclear bombs that explode during the day.

    A thousand people may fall next to you and ten thousand to the right of you, but death will not come near you.  Only with your eyes shall you look and see the just consequence upon the wicked.

    Because you have made the LORD (Yahweh, the self-existing God), the personal refuge of king David, even the most High, your dwelling place; you will experience no evil, neither shall any plague (anthrax or smallpox) shall come near you home.

    For God will put His angels in charge of your safety to keep you everywhere you go.  His angels shall hold you up in their hand and keep you from stumbling over any stones in your way.

    You shall have victory over the fieriest of the animals of prey and the most poisonous.  You shall have victory over those who are the strongest and most feared.

    Because of your love for God, God promises to deliver you and place you in a position of prominence ... because you have know the name of the true God.

    God says that you can call upon Him and He will deliver you and be with you in trouble even as He was with Daniel's friends.  God will deliver you and give honor to you.

    God will give you the satisfaction of living a long time and will show you His salvation.



Psalms 91  KJV

    "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.  Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;    There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.    For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.  Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.   With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation"  (Psalms 91:1-16).
