Word Study

From NetBible Isa 26:3

  • keep[05341]= guard with fidelity, watch over, protect
  • perfect peace[07965] = complete peace, safety

    *From Zech 2:8

    • the apple (pupil) of the eye[0892] = gate
      The pupil is one of the most vulnerable and valuable parts of the body, so for Judah to be considered the “pupil” of the Lord’s eye is to raise her value to an incalculable price (cf. NLT “my most precious possession”).

From NetBible Song 1:15, 5:12, 4:1

  • eyes like doves
    * The comparison has to do with gentleness and purity, as well as longing and simplicity

    * like doves[03123]
    (apparently from the warmth of their mating – like the warmth/effervesce from wine)* this may be a comparison of sense, usually suggesting that the dove is a symbol for purity and that the eyes of a person are the windows of their soul or character, that is, the bride has a pure character as can be seen through her eyes.

From NetBible Mt 6:22
If you eye is single

  • single[573]= sound, whole, clear, pure, true

your whole body will be full of light.

  • full of light[5460] = of a bright character, lustrous
    *full of truth and its knowledge, together with the spiritual purity associated with it

From NetBible Ps 123:1

To You I lift up my eyes

  • lift up[05375] = marry, desire, long for

From NetBible Ps 86:11

give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name.

  • undivided heart[03161] = heart joined, united, married
    to fear the Lord’s name
  • fear[03372] = to stand in awe of, reverence, honour, respect

Two Kinds of Shadows

November 2, 2010

Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow. ~Swedish Proverb

Psalm 23:4 NKJV … Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 36:7-9 NIV … How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast in the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

Psalm 91:1,4 AMP … He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. … He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

“Two kinds of shadows. When we are in the shadow worry (Ps 23:4), we need the shadow of wings (Ps 36.7)” – John Piper

Psalm 17:8 NIV … Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.

In the Shadow of His Wings

June 1, 2009


In the shelter of the Most High
Be covered with His feathers
In the shadow of His wings
Take refuge and find rest, sweet rest.

My soul finds rest in God alone; He alone is my rock and my salvation;   –Ps 62:1-2

Enter His rest, come and abide
Be hidden beneath His wings
Kept safe as the apple of His eye.   –Ps 17:8

There in the shadow of His wings
Righteousness, peace and joy    –Rom 14:17
Glad joy, inexpressible joy full of glory.    –1 Pe 1:8

Rejoice in the shadow of His wings
In the cleft of the Rock be glad
And ever sing for joy!   –Ps 63:7; Song 2:14


Psalm 91:1-2, 4 NLT    Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
Will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord:
“He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
He is my God, and I trust Him”.

He will cover you with His feathers.
He will shelter you with His wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.


Psalm 5:11-12 NLT    Let all who take refuge in You rejoice;
Let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread Your protection over them,
That all who love Your name may be filled with joy.
For You bless the godly, O Lord;
You surround them with Your shield of love.

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings.

Come to I AM
I know you are in need of My rest. -Mt 11:28

Draw near
I AM your hiding place
I AM will keep you safe surrounded with songs of deliverance.

Come close, close enough for our eyes to meet
I will show you the way to go
I will guide you with My eye. -Ps 32:7-8

Draw near
Be hidden beneath My wings
Lift up your eyes to I AM
Behold as the eyes of servants look to their King -Ps 123:1-2
My eye will guide you
I AM will bless you and keep you
Be kept as the apple of My eye in the shadow of My wings
My face will shine upon you and be gracious to you
My face will turn toward you
And you shall have the peace of I AM.

Numbers 6:24-26 AMP
The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually).
