John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 31:20

The secret — Or, as in the secret of thy presence: either, As if they were in thy presence chamber, where thine own eye and hand girdeth them, from all the assaults of their enemies; called his secret, partly, because the greatest part of the world are strangers to God and his presence: and partly, because it is a safe and secure place, such as secret and unknown places are. Or, As if they were in the secret of God's tabernacle, as it is called, Psalms 27:5, the place of God's special presence, where none might enter save the high — priest. With thy secret favour and providence, which saves them by hidden and unknown methods. From — From their vain — glorious boasting and threats, and from their bad and insolent attempts. Pavilion — Or, tabernacle. Strife — From contentious and slandering tongues.
