I Will Set Him On High Because He Knows My Name – Psalm 91:14b

Set Him On High

God offers this promise: I will set him on highDavid knew God was faithful to this word.  He’d experienced it in his own life.


He wrote in 2 Samuel 22:49: He delivers me from my enemies.  You also lift me up above those who rise against me; You have delivered me from the violent man.

So let’s see what we can discover.   I WILL SET HIM ON HIGH is Strong’s #7682 To set on highand it looks like this:    It is a primitive root and it is pronounced ‘saw gav.’   It means to be or make lofty, inaccessible, safe, strong or to exalt.

Shin= Shin 300 = Victory of good over evil, Holy Spirit. Means: Teeth, Fire, the Fire of God to consume all His enemies, Devour, Destroy,  Something Sharp.

Gimmel = Gimmel 3 = Divine perfection.   Means Camel- Generous Rich man—To lift up and to Give, to Benefit, to Toil, to Retaliate

Bet = Bet 2 = Divide or Division     Meaning: House/Family

 I WILL SET HIM ON HIGH: I (God) will Consume your enemies (Shin) and Lift you Up in Retaliation (Gimmel). I will clearly establish that you are in My Family (Bet).

BECAUSE HE HAS KNOWN is the next phrase and it is Strong’s #3045.  It looks like this: he has known  It is pronounced ‘yaw-dah’ (the a in dah is pronounced like in dad)  It is a primitive root and it means to know, to learn, to perceive, to discern, to experience, to confess, to consider, to know people relationally, or to know how to do something.

The simple meaning, to know, is its most common translation out of the eight hundred or more uses. One of the primary uses means to know relationally and it especially signifies knowing what to do or think with respect to God.

Let’s see what the letters tell us:

Yod= Yod 10 = The outcome, the completion of something. Means: Hand, Arm, Power – Right hand of God’s power, a Deed Done, to Work, to Cover, Allow, Hollow, Open Hand

Dallet= Dallet 4 = Earth or creation. Means: Door, Gate, Impoverished man, to come from

Ayin= Ayin 70 = Completion of Time. Means: Eye, to See, Understand, Experience, or to be Seen, window of the soul, good or bad

BECAUSE HE HAS KNOWN: Because you have cooperated with Me and Worked (Yod) to come out the Door of your Impoverished Man mentality (Dallet) to see and understand Me and allow Me to be seen in you (Ayin).

My NAME is the last thing we will look at for now.  It comes from Strong’s #8034 and it looks like this: the name   It is pronounced  ‘Ha shem,’ and it means a name. It is most often used in Hebrew by present-day Jews for God’s name.  They substitute God’s official name, Yahweh with Hashem to avoid using His holy name.

Shin= Shin 300 = Victory of good over evil, Holy Spirit. Means: Teeth, Fire, the Fire of God to consume all His enemies, Devour, Destroy,   Something Sharp.

CLOSED MEM = closed Mem 600 = Trial, testing, Tribulation. Means: A closed Mem means Hidden Truth

MY NAME: Because you have discovered the Hidden Truth (Closed Mem) that I Am the ultimate Victor over your Enemies (Shin).

~~Journal Notes~~

In 2009, my husband and I went through a time of waiting and testing.  It was then that God spoke to me so clear and so often, to encourage me and keep me from totally losing it.    One such morning He said:

“Yes, Lord.”

“Come to Me. Sit with Me. Let Me sing to you. You are My song. You are the one who makes My heart sing. My words are full of promise and wonder as I see the beauty I placed in you come alive.” Then He started singing part of a song to me that I often sang to Him but with some pronoun changes.”
“You are the song that I sing.
You are the melody and we are in harmony.
Praises to Me your life brings.
I AM the Mighty God
I AM the Lord of Hosts
I AM the King of all kings.”
“Come now join Me.  Rest in My arms My love.
Come now and dance with your King.”
“Love isn’t about striving to do. Love is about looking to Me and living. All your self-defenses fall away when your eyes are on Me. Your need to combat and confront falls to the ground, when you see My love face to face. Love dismantles the anger. Love melts cold hearts. Love covers and comforts. Love forgives and delights in being forgiven. Love is not rational. Love is relational. It moves beyond self and surrenders to serve others. It sees from their shoes. It speaks to their heart, not to their head. It discovers truth in listening, not in arguing. It is easily entreated. Slow to anger, abounding in mercy. Looking for ways to bless rather than curse.”
Remember we are one. I will sustain you through the pain of love rejected and celebrate every victory with you as well.”
Here is the Summary of verse 14:


Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. Psalm 91:14 NKJV

Because we have completely separated ourselves to God, cutting off the enemy influence in our lives and living in holiness as one of God’s chosen ones,

God says, I will deliver you.  I will exercise My authority and say, you are under new government, My authority. And I will judge the enemy who is twisting truth.

I, God, will set you on high. I will consume your enemies, lift you up in retaliation, and clearly establish that you are in My family.

Because you have cooperated with Me and worked to come out the door of your impoverished man mentality, to see and understand Me and allow Me to be seen in you, you have discovered the hidden truth and power of My name.  You see now that I am the ultimate victor over your enemies and are trusting Me.  (Trust is understood from us knowing Him).

KNOWING HIM MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.  Each of us is His unique and precious treasure.  He fashioned us with such care and loves us in ways we will take eons to comprehend.  Set your love on Him.  You will never be sorry.
Next, we will discover the benefits of prayer and calling upon Him.

  2. i thank you so much for sharing your study of Psalm 91. I was given this chapter some months ago and always wanted to understand what the Lord was saying. I’ve seen from your study how much the Father truly loves his children who will come and abide with Him.

    • Thank you for your comment Henriola. My intent in sharing this study has been exactly what you’ve said. As I personally dove into the Hebrew understanding of this chapter, I discovered so much about His love and care and knew it needed to be shared. May we all learn to abide with Him. I’m still learning along with everyone else. God bless you.

  3. Thank you for sharing…. Going through a heavy trial of 9 of my children who rejected me after I divorced their abusive dad. He has brainwashed their minds and hearts… deception is so strong … I needed to be encouraged today and know that God will deliver them… He is a sociopath! 20 long years in this battle …. Still praying ❣️
