Visual Bible Verse of the Day: Psalm 3:3-4 with Fall Aspens and Mountains, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
“But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. I was crying to the LORD with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.” Psalm 3:3-4
Mountains: Metaphors of God
Psalm 3 verse 4 ends with the word “Selah”, which means to pause and ponder. Many times throughout it’s pages the Bible uses the imagery of mountains to say something about God. When we look at them, it is easy to understand why. Mountains give the abstract ideas of majesty and power something tangible we can visualize. So much about them is breath taking and awe inspiring. There is no better visual metaphor to tell of something great than the imagery of a mountain. Psalm 3 uses a mountain to describe the greatness of the dwelling place of God, the One who rescues us. Selah!
King David wrote Psalm 3 while being chased by his prodigal son Absalom, who wanted to overthrow him.
