Job 28:7 There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen:

Where is that place?

Psalm 91:1 (KJV*) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 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.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

As the new school year begins, with various challenges, it is good to get together as a family and claim Psalm 91 on a regular basis.

Also, when it comes to health, why not believe for a year of divine health?

Psalm 91:3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

Psalm 91:7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Job 28:7 There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen:

 

*The KJV (King James Version) has been used for over 400 years.  One advantage of it is that it correlates with the Strong’s Concordance which defines the words in the KJV in the original Greek and Hebrew.  You can learn a lot by looking things up in a Strong’s concordance when you are studying with a KJV Bible.  However, since King James had this Bible made in the 1600s, the English may look strange.  If you had to study Shakespeare in high school, you probably already know these things, but here are some equivalents.  Once you get the hang of it, it’s not too hard.  Use a good dictionary as well.

dwelleth…dwells
thee, thou…you
flieth…flies (v.), travels (v.) (the verb, not the noun, not house flies)
walketh…walks
wasteth…wastes
thy, thine…your
nigh…near
