We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield.
The Lord helps them [the godly], rescuing them from the wicked. He saves them, and they find shelter in him.
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
For I hold you by your right hand— I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.
Psalms 46:1 (NIV)
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
For you have rescued me from my troubles and helped me to triumph over my enemies.
All you who fear the Lord, trust the Lord! He is your helper and your shield.
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!
Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness.
