40 And the LORD [Yahovah] shall help [`azar] them, and deliver [palat] them: he shall deliver [palat] them from the wicked [rasha`], and save [yasha`] them, because they trust [chacah] in him. KJV-Interlinear
40 The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him. ESV
The Lord, is the personal name for the second person of the Trinity, namely Jesus Christ. It is Christ who helps and delivers, and deliver is repeated twice in this verse, with regard to Christians, who are believers in Jesus Christ.
The word for help, azar, means to surround and protect.
The word for deliver, palat, means to escape or carry away.
The first reference of help and deliver, means a complete enclosure of the Lord around each individual believer, a wall of fire protection, as it were. And then it is also the Lord, that carries each person away, out of harm’s way.
The only thing that you need to be protected from or carried away from, is evil. Anything that is not evil, obviously is good. And there is no need to escape from good.
The word for save, yasha, means to rescue, preserve, and protect, in victory.
The word for trust, chacah, means to flee to protection, to confide in, to take refuge, to trust.
And this occurs because the trust of the believer is directed toward the Lord, Jesus Christ, and not to any other human or worldly resource.
The trust of the believer, began with their initial faith in Christ, securing salvation for them. And that trust continues and grows and strengthens, as their spiritual life grows as a result of their daily Bible study.
Granted, most Christians do not pursue their daily Bible study, and therefore do not grow up in their spiritual life.
However, Christ is truth and certain. And even though Christians fail and come up short in their spiritual life, Christ does not fail, and security and protection within Him is certain and absolute.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
