Salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks (Isa. 26:1)

The Hebrew word yeshu'ah (salvation) is of deep and varied significance, including such concepts as welfare, safety, prosperity, deliverance, and victory. In many passages using the word, stress is laid on "salvation by God, primarily from external evils, but often with added spiritual idea," as Brown, Driver, and Briggs express it in their Hebrew Lexicon. Moffatt renders the present passage, "Ours is a strong, sure city, safe with walls and ramparts set by Him"; while Smith suggests, "A strong city is ours; for safety he sets up walls and bulwarks."
