Psalms 33:17

A horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
Read Chapter 33

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
17. "A horse is a deceitful thing for safety:" he is deceived, who thinketh either that through men he gaineth salvation received among men, or that by the impetuosity of his own courage he is defended from destruction. "In the abundance of his strength shall he not be saved" (ver. 17).

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Safety. Either of himself or his master. (Worthington) (Proverbs xxi. 31.) This can only be attributed to God's protection, ver. 18.

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