Praise be to the LORD, for he showed me the wonders of his love when I was in a city under siege.
King James Bible
Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
American Standard Version
Blessed be Jehovah; For he hath showed me his marvellous lovingkindness in a strong city.
Young's Literal Translation
Blessed is Jehovah, For He hath made marvellous His kindness To me in a city of bulwarks.
Psalm 31:21 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
In a strong city - If this Psalm was written by David, this must refer to his taking refuge with achish, king of Gath, who gave him Ziklag, a fortified city, to secure himself and followers in. See 1 Samuel 27:6. This is more likely than that it was Keilah, where he only had intimation of the traitorous design of the inhabitants to deliver him up to Saul; so that the place was no refuge to him, howsoever fortified. Perhaps the passage may mean that, under the protection of God, he was as safe as if he had been in a fortified city.
