Psalms 119:114 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 119:114

Thou [art] my hiding place
From temporal calamities. The perfections of God are chambers of retreat and safety to his people, where they may hide themselves and be safe, till such calamities are over, ( Isaiah 26:20 ) ( Psalms 57:1 ) . And from spiritual evils; from avenging justice, from divine wrath, from the rage of Satan, and the fury of men, ( Isaiah 32:2 ) ( 25:4 ) ; and from eternal death, and being hurt by it; the spiritual and eternal life of saints being hid with Christ in God, ( Colossians 3:3 ) ; see ( Psalms 32:7 ) ;

and my shield;
to protect from all dangers, and preserve from every enemy: such are the love and grace, the power and strength, the truth and faithfulness of God; which are the saints' shield and buckler, ( Psalms 5:12 ) ( 91:4 ) ( 1 Peter 1:5 ) ; such also the person, blood, righteousness, and salvation of Christ, who is a sun and shield; the shield of faith, or which faith holds up and defends the soul against the attacks of a powerful enemy, ( Psalms 84:11 ) ( Ephesians 6:16 ) ;

I hope in thy Word;
in Christ the Word, for acceptance and justification, for peace, pardon, and eternal salvation; all which are in him: in the word of promise, for all supplies of grace, strength, light, life, and comfort here, and for glory hereafter, contained therein; see ( Psalms 119:74 Psalms 119:81 ) .

112 My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end.
113 I hate double-minded people, but I love your law.
114 You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
115 Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
116 Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.
