"He is my fortress, in which I am safe and think myself so—my high tower, or stronghold, in which I am out of the reach of real evils—the tower of salvation, which can never be sealed nor battered, nor undermined. Salvation itself saves me. Am I in distress? he is my deliverer—struck at, shot at? he is my shield—pursued? he is my refuge—oppressed? He is my Savior, that rescues me out of the hand of those that seek my ruin. "Am I burdened, and ready to sink? The Lord is my stay, by whom I am supported. Am I in the dark, benighted, at a loss? Thou art my lamp, O Lord! to show me my way, and thou wilt dispel my darkness," (For thou art my lamp, O Lord: and the Lord will lighten my darkness. If we sincerely take the Lord for our God, all this, and much more, he will be to us, all we need and can desire."
~ Matthew Henry on 2 Samuel 22
