Our high tower

The word for “refuge” in the Psalms

Is sometimes rendered

“a high tower.”

Phillips notes

David was no stranger to trouble.

He had spent most of his youth

and early manhood hiding

in the hills, forests, wastelands,

He even hid in foreign countries

from His slanders and executioners.

Often he longed for a high tower,

He looked for a place of security

He looked for a place he could run

He looked for a place hide

secure from his enemies.

He found His refuge in the Lord.

Come to me Jesus tells us

Come to me

all you who are weary

all you who are burdened,

and I will give you rest.
