Psalm 9:9
The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.









(7) Lord of hosts.--See Note on Psalm 24:10.

Refuge.--Rightly in the margin with idea of height, as giving security.

Verse 7. - The Lord of hosts is with us (comp. 2 Chronicles 15:2; 2 Chronicles 20:17; Isaiah 8:8, 10). This is the ground of assurance. Our God, Jehovah, is "the Lord of hosts" - one who has countless angels at his command (2 Kings 6:16, 17; Psalm 68:17; Matthew 26:53). And he is "with us" - on our side, ready to help. The God of Jacob is our Refuge; i.e. our covenant God, the God who entered into covenant with our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
