Additional Links

ref´ūj : A place of resort and safety. The principal words in the Old Testament are מחסה , maḥṣeh ( Psalm 14:6; Psalm 46:1; Psalm 62:7 , Psalm 62:8; Isaiah 4:6 , etc.), and מנוס , mānōṣ (2 Samuel 22:3; Psalm 59:16 , etc.), both applied chiefly to God as a "refuge" for His people. For the King James Version "refuge" in Deuteronomy 33:27 , the Revised Version (British and American) has "dwelling-place," and in Psalm 9:9 , "high tower." Conversely, the Revised Version (British and American) has "refuge" for the King James Version "shelter" in Psalm 61:3 , and "hope" in Jeremiah 17:17 .
