very.present.

 

“A very present help in trouble,”  Psalm 46

In distresses he has so been found, he has been tried and proved by his people.

He never withdraws himself from his afflicted.

He is their help,

Truly,

Effectually,

Constantly;

He is present or near them, close at their side and ready for their succour (aide,relief), and this is emphasised by the word “very” in our version,

He is more present than friend or relative can be,

Yea,

More nearly present than even the trouble itself.

To all this comfortable truth is added the consideration that his assistance comes at the needed time. -CHS
