What does Proverbs 14:26 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 14:26

In the fear of the Lord [is] strong confidence
Such who fear the Lord may be confident that he has a love to them, a delight in them; that his eye is upon them, and his heart towards them; and will communicate every needful good to them, and protect and defend them: or the Lord himself that is feared, who is the object of fear, called the fear of Isaac, ( Genesis 31:42 ) ; he is a strong tower, a place of defence to those that fear him and trust in him, ( Proverbs 18:10 ) ; and his children shall have a place of refuge;
the children of God, as those that fear him are; the Lord is a place of refuge to them, from the avenger of blood, from the vindictive justice of God; from the storm and tempest of divine wrath, and from the curses of a righteous law; as well as from the rage and persecutions of men.
