International Standard Bible EncyclopediaREFUGE
ref'-uj: A place of resort and safety. The principal words in the Old Testament are machceh (Psalm 14:6; Psalm 46:1; Psalm 62:7, 8 Isaiah 4:6, etc.), and manoc (2 Samuel 22:3 Psalm 59:16, etc.), both applied chiefly to God as a "refuge" for His people. For the King James Version "refuge" in Deuteronomy 33:27, the Revised Version (British and American) has "dwelling-place," and in Psalm 9:9, "high tower." Conversely, the Revised Version (British and American) has "refuge" for the King James Version "shelter" in Psalm 61:3, and "hope" in Jeremiah 17:17.
