“The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed” (Psalm 28:8). Translators have translated this in many ways. NIV says, “The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.” Though the primary subject of this verse is David as King, New Testament language fills this Old Testament verse.
Jehovah is his strength or the strength of his people. Jesus is Jehovah who is our Lord and our strength. The word salvation is “yeshûʿâ” which is the Hebrew form of the name Jesus whose name means “salvation.” He came to save His people. The “anointed one” or Hebrew “māshîaḥ” or as we know Messiah. “Christ” is the Greek for anointed. Jesus is our strength, our salvation, and anointed one in us. All this good news in one Old Testament verse. In the Old hidden and in the New revealed.
