(9) The Lord also.--Better, but let Jehovah.

Refuge.--Properly, a stronghold: a citadel into which the persecuted would retreat.

Oppressed.--Properly, crushed.

Trouble.--From root meaning "to cut off from." Sc., "provisions," "water," and the like. Its cognate in Jeremiah 14:1; Jeremiah 17:8, means "drought." The phrase "in times of trouble" recurs in Psalm 10:1.

Verse 9. - The Lord also will be a Refuge for the oppressed. Misgab, translated "refuge," is literally "a hill-fort" (comp. Psalm 144:2, where it is rendered "high tower"). David's use of the metaphor is reasonably ascribed to his having "often experienced safety in such places, when fleeing from Saul" (Hengstenberg; see 1 Samuel 23:14). A refuge in times of trouble; literally, in times in trouble; i.e. "in times that are steeped in trouble" (Kay).
