(27) The eternal God is thy refuge.--The word "thy" is not represented in the original. Ma'onah, the word for refuge, differs very slightly from the "refuge" of Psalm 90:1, "Lord, thou hast been our refuge in generation and generation," which are also the words of Moses. The same word is used of the "habitation of Jehovah" in heaven (Deuteronomy 26:15). Perhaps we ought to connect this clause with what pre cedes, and render the passage thus:--

" There is none like the God of Jeshurun,

Riding on the heavens for thy help,

And in His Majesty on the sky--

The dwelling of the eternal Jehovah (above thee)

And underneath, the everlasting arms!

And He will expel before thee (every) enemy,

And will say (to thee), Destroy them." . . .

Verse 27. - God is the Refuge or Dwelling-place of his people, their Protection amid the storms of life, and the unfailing Source of comfort and blessing to them in their pilgrimage state. Over them is his sheltering protection, and underneath them the support of his everlasting arms.
