Can someone explain further Psalm 91:6
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

Or of the account that walks in darkness or of the spirit that devastates at noonday

Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noon.


Any further analysis of this would be great thank you

Re: Can someone explain further Psalm 91:6
You’re missing the beginning of the sentence:

You need not fear the terrors of the night, the arrow that flies in the daytime, the plague that stalks in the darkness, the scourge that wreaks havoc at high noon.

No analysis needed if you take the time to read the passage from the beginning. Why take one verse without any context and try to analyze it?

The Op, is digging too much into it expecting it to be a Biblical warning of COVID and to not fear.

He is limiting his mentality by not understanding that this blessing transcends man understanding and means so much more than a virus/vaccine but all walks and days of life.

I'm using this link to read it.

[link to web.mit.edu (secure)]

Line 1) He is in the shadow of the lord. Resting. Therefore he is in the shade. The sun does not heat him to unforgettability. He need not worry of that.

that is mirrored till line 7. Which then shifts to

8. Since you are protected in his shade. Shadow. You will just watch and not become victim to it. Which is mirrored in the following lines after.

This is all based on you being a follower of christ and knowing the laws though. You are in his shade because you understand. not because he loves you. Its metaphorical in lots of ways.

Re: Can someone explain further Psalm 91:6
Don't just try to interpret a single sentence. Context matters.

Psalm 91 is in its entirety about you being safe from all harm once you are under God's protection. The general form of Psalm 91 is poetic, because it is poetry. This means the feeling the words inspires in the reader by free association is the actual point. This was not written by a lawyer, and you shouldn't read it like one!

Psalm 91:6 lists one example of the many kinds of harm you will be protected against, namely disease. It's repeated twice in different words, just because it's poetry.

Not much more to it.

IMO, the CORRECT way to read the Psalms, is to feel what they make you feel. Not to dissect them and make up clever interpretations. There's nothing for your left brain to decode here, it's food for your right brain.

Re: Can someone explain further Psalm 91:6
But as the angel was preparing to destroy Jerusalem, the LORD relented and said to the death angel, “Stop! That is enough!”

At that moment the angel of the LORD was by the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.

When David saw the angel, he said to the LORD, “I am the one who has sinned and done wrong!

But these people are as innocent as sheep—what have they done? Let your anger fall against me and my family.”

Gotta start with:
"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"

Darkness: pestilence delivered specifically in darkness (secret, behind the scenes, cloak of darkness)

Noon: seeing the destruction to kill our strength and spirit.

So... don't be afraid of the dark, keep the faith, understand the destruction and from where it comes.

King James did indeed have lawyers on his staff of writers.

Emotions (feelings) and their development happens from age 16-35, following Maslows. During that time we develop our pineal gland to see the world for our children, for that time period in life. Emotions aren't just a gift, they are a tool.

The Psalms are indeed poetry, designed to appeal to emotion but also timeless in their ability to develop physical and intellectual needs. So the verses of 91 also speak of physical bravery, and of resolve to children. And of astuteness and esteem to older people.
