What a shield!


    But you, O LORD, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head. —Psalm 3:3 ESV

C. H. Spurgeon, from The Treasury of David:

The word in the original signifies more than a shield; it means a buckler round about, a protection which shall surround a man entirely, a shield above, beneath, around, without and within. Oh! what a shield is God for his people!
