Psalms 118:8-9

Context

118:8 It is better to take shelter 1  in the Lord

than to trust in people.

118:9 It is better to take shelter in the Lord

than to trust in princes.

1 tn “Taking shelter” in the Lord is an idiom for seeking his protection. Seeking his protection presupposes and even demonstrates the subject’s loyalty to the Lord. In the psalms those who “take shelter” in the Lord are contrasted with the wicked and equated with those who love, fear, and serve the Lord (Pss 5:11-12; 31:17-20; 34:21-22).
