Psalm 91:1-6, 14-16 - Beneath the wings of one's guardian angel

Updated: Nov 8, 2022

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, *

abides under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 He shall say to Yahweh, "You are my refuge and my stronghold, *

elohay in whom I put my trust."

3 He shall deliver you from the snare of the hunter *

and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He shall cover you with his pinions, and you shall find refuge under his wings; *

his faithfulness shall be a shield and buckler.

5 You shall not be afraid of any terror by night, *

nor of the arrow that flies by day;

6 Of the plague that stalks in the darkness, *

nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day.


14 Because he is bound to me in love, therefore will I deliver him; *

I will protect him, because he knows my Name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; *

I am with him in trouble; I will rescue him and bring him to honor.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, *

and show him my salvation.


This is the companion Psalm for the Track 1 Old Testament reading selection from Jeremiah 32, where Yahweh spoke to His prophet telling him to buy land from his cousin and seal the deed in an earthen jar, which would be buried in the ground, preserved for a long time. The symbolism of that story is one of repentance for past sins, with reincarnation the promise to have another chance to live a life in the flesh for Yahweh (as His prophet, or priest, or saint), with the promise also being that the future will include those like Jeremiah, who are the necessary agents of Yahweh who lead willing souls to the altar of marriage and then officiate that most holy union. The lesson says to be a soul saved and to gain freedom from the imprisonment a body of flesh in a sinful world – to die and be granted eternity with Yahweh in His spiritual realm – one must be led into that light by the servants of Yahweh on earth. Psalm 91 sings of both the divine possession of saints by Yahweh and His Son’s soul, while also being the truth they personally know and teach to seekers, so their souls in their flesh can duplicate that prophet, priest, and saint in many others.

The above translation into English is weak; so, I will reproduce what was written and then interpret each verses.

Verse 1: “he who dwells in the secrecy as the highest , as the shadow of the flesh shall abide .

In this, the Hebrew word “elyown” is translated as “highest,” with “most high” a common replacement. The word is said to be “the name of God.” (Brown-Driver-Briggs) This makes the implication of “he who dwells in the secrecy” of Yahweh, as the shadow of the flesh” is a profound statement of divine spiritual possession of a soul in its flesh, by the Son of Yahweh – Adam-Jesus. When the masculine singular is recognized as a statement of a non-physical entity – as a spirit, angel, eternal soul – as a masculine entity, this relates to the Son’s soul. For it to “dwell” and “abide” in “secrecy,” “as a shadow,” then this is a second soul resurrected within the host soul of a body of flesh. To “abide” then means this divine second soul “will lodge” or “pass the night” in a host soul, keeping it from the darkness of a world without light.

Verse 2: “I will say , Yahweh is my refuge and my stronghold ; my elohim , I will trust in him .

This is not David pronouncing “I will say,” but the “shadow of the flesh” that has become the Lord over his flesh (willingly and lovingly). This means David is led to hear and enthusiastically support the soul of Yahweh’s Son “saying, Yahweh is my refuge and my stronghold.” In this, “Yahweh” is specifically named, unlike the weak English translations that throw that name out with the garbage associated with the Jews who killed Jesus. This says ALL souls that will be Anointed by the Spirit of Yahweh (like David – made a “Messiah” [Hebrew] and a “Christ” [Greek]) will likewise hear an inner voice speaking that the Lord within comes from “Yahweh.” That gift is a wedding gift, as the consummation of a divine marriage, where the Son is each time reborn in a new soul, in new flesh. The presence of the Son is then the guardian that protects a once sinful soul (cleansed by the Baptism by Yahweh’s Spirit) from ever sinning again. One’s soul takes “refuge” as a soul that follows that divine lead and, a Lord over one’s soul-flesh, will be the inner strength that will keep all urges to sin from ever being heard, thus never followed. This will then make the “Yahweh elohim” that is the Son (Adam-Jesus) become one’s own personal “elohim.” This is the necessary resurrection that ensures salvation. With that inner strength as one’s Lord, then one has transformed from the belief of religion based on Scripture, to “trust in him,” which is the deep faith that the Son enlightens one to the light of truth, making all questions of darkness disappear.

Verse 3: “for he will deliver you from the snare of the trapper , from the plague of desires .

Again, the third-person masculine pronoun “he” (“”) is reference to the soul of Yahweh’s Son within one’s soul-flesh, as its Lord and protector. The essence of “to deliver” means to “to snatch away” from the dangers of sin. The Hebrew words translated as “the snare of the trapper” can equally say “the bird trap of the fowler,” where the metaphor of a bird (as a winged creature) is that of an angel, which also relates to the ethereal realm as a spirit or soul. The soul is ensnared in a body of flesh and naturally wants to fly away, which means death, when the soul is released to Yahweh. The “fowler” or the “trapper” is then no different than the serpent in Eden, as the craftiest of the creatures. He is himself a spirit, fallen angel, condemned soul, who earned that distinction by going against Yahweh command to help mankind. Instead, he tries to lure souls into the “snares” of sin, which not only keeps a soul imprisoned within a body of flesh, but makes it come back again (reincarnation), if those sins have not been redeemed. This means “he will deliver you” has to do with Yahweh erasing past sins by His Baptism of Spirit upon one’s soul forever, with His Son then sent in to make sure no further “traps” will be entered.

Verse 4: “with his wings ׀ he will overshadow you and underneath his wings you will find refuge ; target and shield his truth .

Here, the metaphor of birds continues, where the inner soul of the Son (Adam-Jesus) is projected as a most divine angel of Yahweh that uses “his wings” as the protection that surrounds a wife-soul of Yahweh and its body of flesh. The vertical bar denotes a place to pause and reflect on “his wings” being a statement that the soul of Adam-Jesus is indeed a guardian angel. Following the vertical bar, the Hebrew word that can state “cover” is translated as “overshadow,” which matches the statement in verse two: “as the shadow of the flesh shall abide.” When “his wings” are seen as “over” one’s soul and flesh, one is then “underneath his wings,” and that is where “refuge’ is provided. This says one cannot be separate from Yahweh’s Spirit, nor the possession of His Son’s soul, as a soul in flesh that ‘believes’ in God and Jesus, but never commits to the truth of that personal experience, which can only come from self-sacrifice and complete submission to Yahweh. This makes one’s soul and flesh become a “target” (also translatable as the ”hook” sought by demon spirits, but “his wings” act as the “shield,” defending one from the lies of demonic persuasion, by knowing the “truth” of all attacks coming forth.

Verse 5: “not you will fear from the dread of night ; of the arrow , it will fly by day –“

In this verse, the opposites presented in “day” and “night” have to be understood as the “light” of truth that comes from the inner voice and the covering of angelic “wings” enlightens the submissive soul-flesh to all dangers that the presence of Adam-Jesus is defending. The “arrow” is then the flight taken by the truth, against all incoming threats. With the truth always shooting down lies, there is no “dread” coming from unseen lures, urges, or demonic whispers. The “arrow will fly by day” as the light of truth setting the path of righteousness, from which one will not be sways to veer off.

Verse 6: “in the plague of darkness walks ; to the destruction will lay waste in daytime .

Here, David sings that the “darkness of fear” lurks. The Hebrew construct “ya·hă·lōḵ,” rooted in “halak,” the meaning “to go, come, walk” can also be found in Scripture translated as “crawls, grows, prowls and wanders.” This says the “pestilence” or “plague” that lurks in “darkness” tries to remain hidden, so “fear” will “come” into one’s soul and flesh. The cure for that “fear” is the “destruction” of the “darkness,” which comes in the dawning of light, “laying waste” to all “fears,” as they are seen for what they truly are – illusions of shadows. The soul of Adam-Jesus is then the protector who brings the “daytime” and “destroys” the darkness.

----- skip forward in the verses -----

Verse 14: “when on me he has set his love then he will rescue me ; he will set me on high , because his has become my name .

In this, it is important to grasp the truth of spiritual “love” (rooted in “chashaq”). Spiritual “love” is well above and far beyond anything that can be related to the physical emotion of the flesh, which is called ‘love.’ Spiritual “love” comes from the Son of Yahweh, as Adam-Jesus IS the truth of Spiritual “love.” Only by having “his love set upon” one’s soul-flesh can one begin to attempt to put into words what that ‘feels’ like. It is indescribable in human terms. It can only be known by personally experiencing the presence of Adam-Jesus within one’s soul, as the Lord over one’s self. That presence means one’s soul has been “delivered” or “rescued” from all past sins, which can only be washed away by the Spirit of Yahweh pouring out upon one’s soul forever. That cleansing by the Spirit makes it then possible for one’s soul to receive the soul of the Son, who is the epitome of Spiritual “love.” To be “set on high” means to ‘feel’ the presence of Spiritual “love,” which is on the level of Yahweh, with nothing possible to be “higher.” When David sang, “because he has become my name,” this is a statement of a soul’s self-sacrifice at the altar of divine marriage, so one’s soul-flesh is in His “name.” When one receives the soul of the Son, then one’s flesh walks the earth in ministry, “in the name” of the Son – Adam-Jesus reborn.

Verse 15: “he will call upon me ׀ and I will answer him , from him I am in distress ; he will rescue me and I achieve honor from him .

This is a statement of ministry, where the “call” is to serve as a devoted wife-soul. The vertical bar leads one to pause and reflect on this “call” being an expectation. A soul cannot “call upon Yahweh” and tell Him to serve one’s needs. Total submission means to be on “call” for the lead of His Son’s soul within – as one’s Lord – which makes the “call” to be ministry “in his name,” for the purpose of leading others to self-sacrifice unto Yahweh and being reborn as His Son. When one has not made this divine “union” – one’s soul to the Spirit of Yahweh – then one will forever be in “distress,” due to the guilts of sins committed. When David sang, “he will rescue me,” this sings about the redemption of all past sins, where the payment agreed to (the Covenant vows of marriage) is to heed the “call” that will come from His Son’s soul within one’s soul-flesh. When one obeys the “call,” then one will “achieve honor from him” – the name of Adam-Jesus – as a saint in his name leading the lost to salvation with words of truth.

Verse 16: “with eternal life I will satisfy him ; and see him , my salvation .

This is David singing to the marriage that is sealed with a soul’s self-sacrifice and forever commitment to Yahweh. In return, the wedding gift is His outpouring of Spirit that cleanses a soul forevermore. That gift is like a wedding band, which signifies an eternity of satisfaction between two Spiritual lovers. In the eternal realm one is able “to see Yahweh,” because the warning says, anyone who sees Yahweh will die.” When one has been “satisfied” with “eternal life” – a great length of daylight” – the no death can ever occur to the soul. When a souls’ body of flesh can no longer support a soul within it, then the flesh will die; but the soul will never again experience the punishment of death when sins have not been paid. The “salvation” gained is “mine,” which is a possessive pronoun that says that soul is possessed by Yahweh in divine marriage (in His name) and also possessed by the soul of the Son (in his name in the flesh).
