The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation (Yeshua), and my high tower.
From the top of Castle Rock, which is the top of Edinburgh Castle, you can see a long, long way in every direction.
It is no surprise then that the word picture meaning for "rock" in Hebrew is: support that controls your seeing and understanding.
The word picture meaning for "tower" is: chaos destroyed to benefit the household".
Maybe these are the images Yeshua (Jesus) had in mind when He said these words:
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock."
