Psalm 33:20 ” We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.”
The Scene: a shield called a buckler–an Israelite shield used for protection.
In 1 Chronicles 17:7-8,11-12 God’s protection was assured to King David and his son Solomon. The buckler was a multi-purpose instrument. When not in use for war, as a defensive armor, it was put to use in other ways: 1)collector of God’s provision, such as, catching rainwater, from which they could obtain a drink, 2) a wash basin, 3) a carry-all, by placing their spear through the handle straps, food or other items could be transported.
Psalm 18:30 ” As for our God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless, He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.”
