    V. 7 "The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble," "Strong hold" indicates that he will help his children when trouble comes, he is a fortress, a shield, a rock, a strong tower, his sword is sharp and ready. He knows that trouble will come and He is ready. Amen

    Vs 2,3 may seem condescending, but that is not the case. Jehovah God is indeed slow to anger and great in power, but will by no means hold back punishment where punishment is due. So we all should examine our steps so as not to be counted as one of God's adversaries. We each reap what we sow.
