Proverbs 18:10

The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
– Proverbs 18:10

The name of the Lord refers to the full attributes of Yahweh. Israel was to trust in the name of the Lord to be delivered from Egypt (Exodus 3:13-15; 34:5-7). A strong tower is an unassailable defense. The believer in Christ is here sheltered from the destruction of his enemies (Psalm 18:2; 61:3-4). The running and safety of the righteous refers to a complete trust and rest in Yahweh (Psalm 56:3-4). Wisdom sees the strength of the unseen defense.
