a strong tower#Pr 18:10 in the face of the enemy.
4I will dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge under the shelter of your wings.#Ru 2:12; Ps 17:8; 91:4Selah

to those who fear your name.#Mal 4:2

may his years span many generations.#Ps 21:4

Appoint faithful love and truth to guard him.#Ps 40:11
8Then I will continually sing of your name,#Ps 7:17; 9:2; 18:49
fulfilling my vows day by day.#Ps 65:1; 116:14,18
