Psalm 91 is a beautiful song of deliverance to our hearts and contains so many embedded gems. In verses 1 and 2, four names of God are used:
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High (elyon -possessor of heaven and earth) shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty (Shaddai - all-bountiful giver of grace). I will say of the LORD (Jehovah who has a relationship with those who love him), He is my refuge and my fortress: my God (Elohim- the creator of heaven and earth); in him will I trust.When you read through the rest of the Psalm with these names in mind, it truly is a song! In the King James Version the word 'deliver' is used three times.
verse 3: Surely he shall deliver thee
verse 14: therefore I will deliver him
verse 15: I will deliver himThese are beautiful verses especially when you look up the word 'deliver' in each verse. These three are actually different words!
verse 3 is natsal (Strongs#5337) meaning to snatch, take away or strip from
verse 14 is palats 3 (#6403) cause to escape
verse 15 is chatats 3 (#2502) draw off or out, withdrawWe certainly could get the message if it was the same word, but as workmen there are special joys when we dig a little deeper to mine the diverse gems of truth and let God take care of His own commentary!
