Psalms 48:3

Psalms 48:3

God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
] As there were palaces in Jerusalem; see ( Psalms 48:13 ) ( 122:7 ) ; so there are in the church of Christ; every place in it is a palace fit for a king; and everyone that has truly a name and a place there are kings and priests unto God: and here God is a "refuge" both for saints and sinners to fly unto; (See Gill on Psalms 46:1); and is "known" to be so; the ministers of the Gospel being here appointed to direct and encourage souls to flee to Christ for refuge, who is the hope set before them in the everlasting Gospel, preached by them to lay hold upon; and all that do flee to him know, by experience, that he is a refuge for them; and as all the people of God do in every time of distress, and when all refuge fails them elsewhere.
