Yahweh’s name is a strong tower;
the righteous person runs to it and is secure. Bible

“secure.” The Hebrew word is sagab (#07682 שָׂגַב), and it literally means “to be lifted up,” to be high, to be inaccessibly high, and in some contexts (but not here) “to be exalted.” The word-picture being drawn in this verse is that the name of Yahweh is a strong tower and those that run to it are high above the spears and arrows of the enemy and are safe and secure.
