Word Study
From NetBible Zep 3:17

  • save[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna
  • He will quiet you[02790] = make silent, give rest
    * “he causes [you] to be silent by his love,” that is, “he soothes [you] by his love.” The present translation follows the LXX and assumes an original reading יְחַדֵּשׁ (yÿkhaddesh, “he renews”) with ellipsis of the object (“you”).

    • NET … He renews you by His love
    • NLT …  With His love, He will calm all your fears
    • KJV … He will rest in His love{give you rest in His love}
  • love[0160] = God’s love for His people, faithfulness

Isaiah 60:13 NASB
13 “The glory of Lebanon will come to you,
The juniper, the box tree and the cypress together,
To beautify the place of My sanctuary;
And I shall make the place of My feet glorious.

From NetBible Isa 60:13

  • beautify[06286] = glorify, adorn
  • sanctuary[04720] = temple, tabernacle, sacred holy place
    Ezek 43:7, where the Lord’s throne is called the “place of the soles of my feet.”
    Isa 66:1, the Lord’s throne is where He rests His feet – He rests/abides
    “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?”
  • glorious[03513] = to bestow honor
    Isaiah 11:10 AMP
    10 And it shall be in that day that the Root of Jesse shall stand as a signal[banner, rally point] for the peoples; of Him shall the nations inquire and seek knowledge, and His dwelling shall be glory [His rest glorious[03519]]!


Jesus My Defense

December 15, 2013

Psalm 59:9-10, 16-17 AMP … O my Strength, I will watch and give heed to You and sing praises; for God is my Defense (my Protector and High Tower). 10 My God in His mercy and steadfast love will meet me; God will let me look [triumphantly] on my enemies (those who lie in wait for me).
… But I will sing of Your mighty strength and power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning; for You have been to me a defense (a fortress and a high tower) and a refuge in the day of my distress. 
17 Unto You, O my Strength, I will sing praises; for God is my Defense, my Fortress, and High Tower, the God Who shows me mercy and steadfast love.

Jesus my defense
My strong protector
In His mercy and steadfast love
He meets me.

Jesus my strength, my song -Ps118:14-15;Is12:2;Ex15:2
As I seek Your beautiful face
You surround me with songs of deliverance

As the Hen Gathers Her Chicks

February 19, 2012

Matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.

The hen gathers her chicks if there is danger. She gathers them under her wings and uses her body as a cover to keep them safe.

Jesus gave His body for our covering. He is our refuge and safe hiding place. He longs for us to run to Him and to be gathered, protected under His wings as His children.



He who dwells in the secret place{shelter} of the Most High

Is hidden
In the secret place of His tabernacle
The secret place of His presence
Set high upon a rock
Preserved, out of the reach of any trouble
Surrounded by songs of deliverance. -Ps 27:5,31:20,32:7

will abide under the shadow of the Almighty. -Ps 91:1

Kept as the apple of His eye
Hidden under the shadow of His wings.

The Lord your keeper
And protective shade on your right hand
[the side not carrying a shield]. -Ps 121:5 AMP

A refuge from the storm
A defense for the helpless
Strength for the weak
A place of shade,
Rest from the heat. -Ps 17:8, 121:5; Isa 25:4


Isaiah 32:2like a hiding place from the wind, and a cover from the tempest, like rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.


Jesus our covering, our hiding place
The Alpha and Omega
The Beginning and the End
The Word made flesh
The Word fully God
The Almighty.
-Jn 1,14;Rev 1:8
