Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

Dwelling place is translated from the Hebrew noun mā‘ôn, which can also mean refuge or protector. In this psalm, the only one attributed to Moses, its mention captures the spiritual significance of home for a people who had no fixed habitation for over forty years.
