2 And a man ['iysh] shall be as an hiding place [machabe'] from the wind [ruwach], and a covert [cether] from the tempest [zerem]; as rivers [peleg] of water [mayim] in a dry place [tsiyown], as the shadow [tsel] of a great [kabed] rock [cela`] in a weary [`ayeph] land ['erets]. KJV-Interlinear
2 Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place,
like the shade of a great rock in a weary land. ESV
The man, is a reference to the King of the previous verse. A strong and wise leader, protects the rights and liberties and freedoms of the citizens, which establishes peace and prosperity, which ensures security, and therefore becomes a place of safety, or a realm of safety, as it were.
The hiding place is the environment of safety, that protects from the winds of destruction.
The covert, refers to a shelter, which protects from the storms that swirl around.
Rivers of water in the desert, or the shadow of the great rock during a bright and hot sunny day, all of these symbolize protection from the hardships and wariness and stresses of life.
And this is a good description of the millennial reign of Jesus Christ, wherein there will be peace and prosperity, and fairness and protection against all of the former things of history, which will be no more.
