Psalm 91 truly offered promises of protection, safety, and assurance to the people who follow the rule in the teks. The problem arose when Psalm 91 intrepreted in a wrong way. Wrong interpretation from Psalm 91 could make believer feels invincible from disease or doubt to the promise the promises did not match with the reality around them: believers and even pastors contracted the disease and some of them passed away due to the disease. This could create a form of distrust and doubt God’s promise. This research used a qualitative approach and grounded theory method.
