He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the fortresses of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

Sure. Never failing. (Calmet) This was a great advantage in those dry regions. (Haydock)

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
“Bread” signifies perfection, as Paul attested while exhorting the weak to conversion: “I gave you milk to drink, not food, for you were then and still remain unable to eat.” If milk is for children, then bread is only for the perfect. Consequently, it was said about the strength of the perfect man: “He will live upon the heights, a fortress of rocks will be his dwelling, bread will be given to him.” - "Six Books on 1 Kings 6.67 (16.1)"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
