You have also given me the shield (defence, cover, surround) of Your salvation (Yeshua);
Your right hand has held me up,
Your gentleness has made me great.
In our initial look at the above verse we discovered that in Hebrew the word shield and garden are derived from the same root word.
We also discovered that the fence or shield that protects the garden is Yeshua our Saviour.
We can add another word to this picture and that is the word grace.
You may recall that the Hebrew word picture for grace is: a fence that protects life.
The first occurrence of the word grace in Scripture is in reference to Noah the builder of the ark.
Of course, the ark was actually a very large fence (shield) protecting all the life left on planet earth after the flood.
We are told that the ark was to be lined inside and out with pitch.
Now it just so happens that pitch shares the same root as the word atonement.
So, let us put all this together.
The ark is a picture of life shielded/protected by a symbol of atoning blood.
The source of that atoning blood is Yeshua our Salvation.
