There is still plenty to study in Psalm 91! If you want to do some study on your own, here are a few ideas to get you started:
For continued study of Psalm 91:
- Use the interlinear tool to study the two names mentioned for God in Psalm 91:1 — Most High and Almighty. Look at other verses where these names are used. What do you learn about these names?
- Use the interlinear tool to study the word refuge as it is used in verses 2 and 9. How is it used in other passages of Scripture? Does it always refer to God?
- Search on the words dwelling place in Blue Letter Bible and study all that this phrase encompasses.
- Use the interlinear tool to study the use of the word fortress in Scripture. What do you learn from your study that helps you better understand God being our fortress?
- Search on the word angels in Blue Letter Bible . Study the narratives that record the appearance of angels. What were their roles? To whom did they appear? To whom did they minister? What sort of messages did they deliver?
- Go back through the children’s assignments, looking for the ones that referred to specific Bible stories. Study these accounts in the same way we have studied Psalm 91. Mark words, makes lists, do words studies, consult commentaries, read cross-references.
- Use the interlinear tool to study the word answer as used in verse 15. Limit your study to its usage in the psalms and proverbs.
- Use the interlinear tool to study the word satisfy as it is used in verse 16. What does the word mean? How is it used in other passages? Who and /or what gives satisfaction?
- Study the rest of Jesus’s temptation in the wilderness in Matthew 4 and Luke 4. In what other ways was Jesus tempted? What were His weapons against Satan? Look at the cross-references related to these two passages. What can you learn from Jesus’ example?
- Study the phrase fear not as it is used in Scripture. When is it used and why? What promises are associated with this command? Study narratives that describe the results of trusting God instead of giving in to fear.
- Do a topical study of trust. Search on the word, take notes on all the passages that speak of trust, and summarize your findings.
- Do the children’s studies with your children, if you didn’t use them while you went through the study yourself. You’ll learn even more as your teach your children!
- Read and take notes from commentaries on all of Psalm 91 — Matthew Henry on Blue Letter Bible, and Treasury of David and John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible on Bible Study Tools.
For studying other passages:
- Use the same tools and marking methods to study another passage of your choice. What can you observe about God in the passage? What words or ideas are repeated that should be marked and examined? What words can you study with the interlinear to further your understanding? What portions of the passage would benefit from you consulting a commentary?
