Five Bible Texts about God’s Protection of Israel

editor - 2 April 2019

The last few months we were startled by several missile and terror attacks in Israel. Unfortunately there were casualties.

God promises in His Word that He will protect Israel, the apple of His eye. We give you five Bible texts that underline this.

Zechariah 2:8
For this is what the Lord Almighty says: After the Glorious One has sent me against the nations that have plundered you—for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye.

Deuteronomy 32:11-12
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft. The Lord alone led him; no foreign god was with him.

Deuteronomy 33:29
Blessed are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread on their heights.

Isaiah 46:4b
I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

Psalm 121:4-5; 7

Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you — the Lord is your shade at your right hand. The Lord will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life.


What is Israel’s hope? “My hope is in you.” David writes in Psalm 39. Prayer point for us: that all Israel may place her hope on the Lord!
