As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

I looked this one up in the Greek and I love the amazing promise that I read!

His way – path, course, road

is perfect – it is entire, complete, without blemish, whole, sound; gives the idea of integrity and truth

the Word – commandment, speech, word

is proven – refined, cast, fine, purged, pure, proven

He is a  shield– protector, defense, buckler

to all – whole, all, any, every one

who trust – to confide in, to flee for protection, to make refuge in, to hope in

His path is perfect.  Jesus proclaimed “I am the way” (John 14:36). He will not steer us wrong.  Thinking of the truth and integrity of His Word, we can picture a goldsmith whose gold is pure.  He is a shield and a protector to everyone who would look to Him for refuge.  If we will just make Him our refuge, if we will place our hope in Him, He will not fail us.
