They go to rest in perfect confidence that God will watch over them; hence their sleep, being undisturbed with foreboding and evil dreams, is sweet and refreshing, Proverbs 3:24.

And all this naturally flows from the Lord being their confidence, Proverbs 3:26.

You will be protected from the lash of the tongue, and need not fear when destruction comes.
