What does Psalm 61:3 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 61:3

For thou hast been a shelter for me
Or "refuge" F25, from avenging justice; a hiding place and covert from the storms and tempests of divine wrath; a shadow and a screen from the heat of Satan's fiery darts, and the blast of his terrible temptations, ( Isaiah 25:4 ) ;

[and] a strong tower from the enemy:
from Satan the devouring lion, from furious persecutors, and every other enemy; see ( Proverbs 18:10 ) ; and this experience the psalmist had of protection from the Rock in former times made him desirous of being led to it now.
