There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.









(2) Defence.--Properly, high tower, as so often. The metaphor is important here from the contrast with the tottering wall of next verse.

Shall not be greatly moved . . .--i.e. (as in Psalm 37:24), shall not be made to totter or fall.

Verse 2. - He only is my Rock (comp. Psalm 61:2, and the comment ad loc.). And my Salvation (so Psalm 18:2; Psalm 27:1; Psalm 118:14, 21). He is my Defence; or, my High Tower, my Strong Hold. I shall not be greatly moved. Comp. ver. 6, where, with still greater confidence, the waiter declares, "I shall not be moved," i.e. not moved, or shaken in my faith, at all.
