Psalm 91

 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
       will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

 2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
       my God, in whom I trust."

 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
       and from the deadly pestilence.

 4 He will cover you with his feathers,
       and under his wings you will find refuge;
       his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

 5 You will not fear the terror of night,
       nor the arrow that flies by day,

 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
       nor the plague that destroys at

 7 A thousand may fall at your side,
       ten thousand at your right hand,
       but it will not come near you.

 8 You will only observe with your eyes
       and see the punishment of the wicked.

 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
       even the LORD, who is my refuge-

 10 then no harm will befall you,
       no disaster will come near your tent.

 11 For he will command his angels concerning you
       to guard you in all your ways;

 12 they will lift you up in their hands,
       so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
       you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
       I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

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

 16 With long life will I satisfy him
       and show him my salvation."


Psalm 91:1 Hebrew Shaddai

Psalm 91:2 Or He says

A brief history:
91st Expeditionary Group (Ichthys ΙΧΘΥΣ)

Commissioned in 2407 the 91st was sent to do battle and provide relief to Starfleet and civilian members of the federation on the Klingon frontlines. On board the flagship cruiser, USS Eisenhower, a young ensign gave his captain an ancient card with Psalm 91 printed on it. “Sir, when I found out that I would be assigned to the new 91st Expeditionary Group I searched the archives for famous 91st battle groups and found reference to an ancient Earth force, the 91st Infantry Brigade of the U. S. Expeditionary Army. This card is reported to be one of the original cards given to those men.”

The captain politely accepted the card and thanked the ensign. The captain read the psalm and was overwhelmed with emotion and comfort. He researched this 91st Infantry Brigade and found out:
About 490 years ago, during an ancient Earth conflict called World War I, the 91st Infantry Brigade of the U. S. Expeditionary Army was preparing to enter combat in Europe. Because their commander was a devout Christian, he assembled his men and gave each of them a little card on which was printed the 91st Psalm, the same number Psalm as their brigade. They agreed to recite that Psalm daily. After they had begun praying the Psalm, the 91st Brigade was engaged in three of the bloodiest battles of World War I — Chateau Thierry, Belle Wood and the Argonne. Other American units that fought in the same battles had up to 90 percent casualties, but the 91st Brigade did not suffer a single combat-related casualty.
The captain was amazed. He had always considered the creator of the universe as a God uninvolved in his creation. Did He really care about his creation? The captain could not shake the power of the psalm nor the history he had read. The anxiety caused by the concern for the safety of the thousand or so people under his command was haunting and unrelenting. Finally he relented his will and prayed “God if you cared about those soldiers please care about mine. If you were involved in their lives be involved in mine, I give you my life and ask that you preserve theirs” The captain vowed to recite the psalm daily as they did. He further decided to have a willing participant recite Psalm 91 over the group’s common channel each day. The first one to receive that honor was the young ensign who brought him the card, Ensign Marcus Fidelis Veritas.

The captain asked Veritas if he knew more about the Christian religion of that ancient commander. Veritas said yes. “Tell me more” said the captain. Veritas proceeded to tell the captain about Jesus and his self-sacrifice that atones for sin and allows a person to have a relationship with creator of the universe. The captain listened and put his faith in the hands of God the Son, Jesus.

After witnessing the new faith of the captain one of his senior officers snidely remarked “What are we going to do now, put a Jesus fish on the nacelle of the cruiser!”

Hmmm… not a bad idea remarked the captain and thus the nickname Ichthys was born.
