The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. (Proverbs 18:10)

The expression translated as “running away” in Hebrew meant the special experience when a lost child finally sees his father.

Before that, he ran away, he wanted to be independent, to achieve something on his own.

Then he stopped, felt lost, frightened, alone and suddenly saw that his father was there, and ran to him.

And on the approach, the father rushed to meet him.

The child has no strength left.

And dad does not just run up, but he bends down, picks him up, lifts him up and presses him close to his heart.
