God of Deliverances

God of Deliverances is one translation of this Hebrew phrase. The second Hebrew word is related to the word for salvation, so the name could equally be the “God of saving acts.”

King David had considerable experience of God saving him from all kinds of danger. He had fought off wild animals while guarding sheep; He had been rescued from a raging King Saul and other enemies. God has always been in the business of delivering people—He still is.
