Wesley's Notes for Judges 6:24


6:24 There - On the top of the rock, as is evident from ver.#26|, where that which is here expressed only in general, is more particularly described. Jehovah - shalom - That is, the Lord's peace; the sign or witness of God's speaking peace to me, and to his people: or the place where he spake peace to me, when I expected nothing but destruction.

    The lord is our peace and our strength. All the peace that we may be in need of from our Jehovah, no other name shall restore us to an eternal peace of mind, but the JESUS NAME ONLY.
