New International Version:
“We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.”(Psalms 33:20)
Tree of Life Version:
“Our soul waits for Adonai— He is our help and our shield.”
New English Translation:
“We wait for the Lord; he is our deliverer and shield.”
“We wait [expectantly] for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.”
Beloved, wait on the Lord, depend on Him, look to His interposition in danger, sickness, poverty, want,etc, rely upon Him for all that is hoped for in this life, and the world to come. Look to Him and wait expectantly on Him; be expectant while waiting, don’t just wait. To wait is a great lesson, to be quiet in expectation, patient in hope, single in confidence, is one of the bright attainments of a Christian. Trust Him with all you are and have.
The Lord is the help of His people in time of trouble, when none else is or can be; and He is a present one, and helps right early, and at the best season: and He is their shield, who encompasses them about with His love and favour, and keeps them by His power in the greatest safety; all which encourages their waiting upon Him and expectation of good things from Him. He is our help in labor, our shield in danger.
