Bible Notes

[The Biblical citations given in the Christian Science Quarterly are from the Authorized King James Version. The Bible Notes in this column can be used, if deemed necessary, to elucidate some of the words or passages contained in the Bible Lessons. The Notes in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon designated to be read in Christian Science churches on April 13, 1941.]

"The Lord is the strength of my life" (Ps. 27:1)—The Hebrew word which is translated "strength" in this verse can also mean "a place of safety," and so "a refuge" or "a fortress." As a consequence, Smith prefers the translation: "The Lord is the refuge of my life;" and the Greek Version had "the defender."
