10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 18:10

Commentary on Proverbs 18:10-11

(Read Proverbs 18:10-11)

The Divine power, made known in and through our Lord Jesus Christ, forms a strong tower for the believer, who relies on the Lord. How deceitful the defence of the rich man, who has his portion and treasure in this world! It is a strong city and a high wall only in his own conceit; for it will fail when most in need. They will be exposed to the just wrath of that Judge whom they despised as a Saviour.
