Our help and our shield

The Hebrew Star of David


Shockingly, the use of the six-pointed star as the Jewish symbol
goes back only a few hundred years. To complicate matters further,
in Hebrew this star is not called a Star of David but magen
david - the Shield of David. Why is this an important
difference?

The Hebrew word for shield magen literally means a protective


covering. In Genesis 15, God makes a covenant with Abram,
saying: Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield (magen)". In
Psalms, we find another usage of the word in reference to God
made by King David himself, repeating over and over that God
alone is our help and our shield (magen), the provider of true
security. Thus, the "Star of David" is actually a symbol of God's
protection.

The true power of the Shield of David can only be accurately


appreciated in the Original Hebrew. You will be amazed at how
safeguarded you feel once you are no longer dependent on
translations. Enroll today to our online biblical Hebrew
