As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.

Psalm 125:2

 

I love the image of God surrounding me. It makes me feel protected and loved. One of my favorite verses is the one just below, Psalm 3:3, because he not only surrounds me but when my head is bowed in sorrow or defeat. he lifts it up! 

 

But you, Lord, are a shield around me,

my glory, the One who lifts my head high.

I call out to the Lord,

and he answers me from his holy mountain.

Psalm 3:3,4

You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance.

Psalm 32:7

 

Many are the woes of the wicked,

but the Lord’s unfailing love

surrounds the one who trusts in him.

Psalm 32:10

 

Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

Psalm 5:12

 

For the angel of the LORD is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.

Psalm 34:7
