Discussion for Psalms 119:114

  • 119 vs. 114, Thou art my hiding place. Sound like Psa. 32:7. I believe this has a dual meaning. First it could mean David found refuge in God from his enemies, and for sure that is true, however I believe the deeper meaning is the refuge is from consequences of sin. The shield spoken of in this verse would protect him from guilt, sadness, and sorrow of past failures, as the enemy would try to use sins already forgiven, against him. David ends this verse like so many others stating,"I hope in your word", that is the promises and truths in it. The word hope is not like one would hope something would come to pass, but rather a resting the thing desired is already secure.
