New Living Translation:
“The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him.”(Nahum 1:7)
New International Version:
“The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,”
“The Lord is good, A strength and stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows [He recognizes, cares for, and understands fully] those who take refuge and trust in Him.”
Common English Bible:
“The LORD is good, a haven in a day of distress. He acknowledges those who take refuge in him.”
Beloved, God is good and always does good. He is not only good but He imparts His goodness onHis own.
He is a stronghold, a hiding/ safe place where His own take refuge; from all troubles of this life( sickness, violence of enemies, dangers, affliction, wickedness in the heart of men, death;physical, spiritual or eternal, etc). Though, God is thus terrible in His power, yet He is merciful, gracious, and beneficent in His nature. He is a sure refuge and protection to those who worship, serve Him sincerely, and put their trust in Him. He knows and pays a particular regard to His own,so that they are never overlooked or neglected. He approves, owns, and preserves His children. Have a trustful reliance on Him.
