The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs to it and is safe and set on high [far above evil] (Proverbs 18:10, AMP).”
The name of the LORD… What’s in a name? The Reformation Study Bible’s commentary on Proverbs 18:10, informed me that, “In Hebrew culture, a name was not a mere label, but usually an expression of the character of a person. God’s covenant name, ‘LORD,’ is associated with His character as Savior of His people …).
The name of the LORD is… He never changes and His names that represent His character never change.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower … The Reformation Study Bible also notes, “The security of the righteous is based on God’s character as a faithful Savior.”
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs to it and is safe and set on high [far above evil] (Proverbs 18:10, AMP).”
“I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name (Psalm 138:2, NLT).”
” You are my hiding place; You, Lord, protect me from trouble; You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah (Psalm 32:7, AMP).”
