Hebrews 6:18
That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:









(6) Counsel.--This confidence, this piety, this appeal addressed to the supreme Protector, is in this verse called the "counsel," the "plan" of the sufferer, and the poet asks, "Would ye then make the sufferer blush for such a thought?" "No, for Jehovah is his refuge." The Authorised Version has here missed the sense by rendering in the past tense.

Verse 6. - Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his Refuge. The sense is obscure. Some translate, "Ye may shame the counsel of the poor (i.e. put it to shame, baffle it); but in vain; for the poor have a sure Refuge," and the ultimate triumph will belong to them. Others, "Ye pour contempt on the poor man's counsel," or "resolve," because "the Lord is his Refuge;" i.e. ye contemn it, and deride it, just because it rests wholly on a belief in God, which you regard as folly (see ver. 1).
