Deuteronomy 33:27 (a) This type is used to describe the rest, peace and safety of the child of GOD who, in the midst of the storms of life flies to the secret place of prayer and there leans upon the breast of his loving Lord. (See Psalm 46:1; Isaiah 25:4).

2 Samuel 22:3 (a) David did not trust in his army, nor in the caves, nor the wilderness, nor men. He trusted only in the protecting care of GOD. (See Psalm 9:9; Psalm 14:6; Psalm 48:3; Psalm 57:1; Psalm 59:16; Psalm 62:7; Psalm 91:2).

Psalm 142:4 (a) All human devices and plans fail to bring security and peace. David wrote this Psalm while he was in a cave fleeing from Saul. His heart was resting in the Lord, not in the darkness of the cave.

Proverbs 14:26 (a) As David, Moses and others of GOD's great men found a shelter from the storm in the protecting care of GOD, so this wise man assures us that that protection may be ours also.

Isaiah 4:6 (a) GOD provides in Himself, and for Himself, all the protection from the storms of life that the believer needs. (See also Isaiah 25:4; Jeremiah 16:19; Hebrews 6:18).

Isaiah 28:17 (b) This is a graphic type of the false position taken by sinners who deceive themselves into thinking they are hidden and protected by false teachings, self-deceptions, and godless religions.
