While we’re busy marking words, making lists, and looking for parallelism and imagery, we don’t want to forget that Psalm 91 was written to be sung, not just read and studied. As we sing the Psalms, we are singing God’s words back to Him. We’re praying, building each other up, expressing our joys and our sorrows, and reminding ourselves of God’s faithfulness.
Here are a few musical versions of Psalm 91 to listen to. Some are sung verbatim from Scripture. Others are based on Psalm 91.
Find your favorite and play it until you start to memorize it.
