He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
The word picture behind "under His wings" is "to cover, to speak life".
But I am the LORD your God,
Who divided the sea whose waves roared--
The LORD of hosts is His name.
And I have put My words in your mouth;
I have covered you with the shadow of My hand,
That I may plant the heavens,
Lay the foundations of the earth,
And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’ ”
