The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

18:10 strong tower. The Lord is often symbolized by a strong tower of refuge and safety (Psalm 18:2; 61:3; 144:2).

18:10 runneth into it. One should run to the Lord, not hesitate. It is interesting to note those who are said to have run to Christ: (1) the demon-possessed man seeking deliverance (Mark 5:6); (2) the young man seeking eternal life (Mark 10:17); (3) the unhappy wealthy man (Luke 19:4); (4) the concerned observer at the cross (Mark 15:36); (5) John and Peter on hearing of the opened tomb (John 20:4,8).
