Proverbs 14:26

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence - From this, and from genuine Christian experience, we find that the fear of God is highly consistent with the strongest confidence in his mercy and goodness.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

His children - Probably, the children whom the Lord adopts, and who are true to their adoption.

Ellen G. White
The Ministry of Healing, 250

When temptations assail you, when care, perplexity, and darkness seem to surround your soul, look to the place where you last saw the light. Rest in Christ's love and under His protecting care. When sin struggles for the mastery in the heart, when guilt oppresses the soul and burdens the conscience, when unbelief clouds the mind, remember that Christ's grace is sufficient to subdue sin and banish the darkness. Entering into communion with the Saviour, we enter the region of peace. MH 250.1

“The Lord redeemeth the soul of His servants:
And none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate.”
MH 250.2
