Psalms Chapter 3

1 (A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.) LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.

2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.

3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.

5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

David knew the Lord,before he met his enemies,who did not know him or the Lord.We may hear the voice and sayings of God's enemies,our enemies,but truth is only in what God has done and will do.Sustaining us,giving us rest and insight,move us to sing God's praises and hope in him.Faith/trust comes by hearing the Word of God,and so we should grow daily unto his glory for his purposes.


A disciple's Psalms Chapter 3 comment on 4/02/2018, 9:11am...

"LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me." Written for 2 Sam 15:12 "And the conspiracy was strong; for the people increased continually with Absalom;" The Holy Spirit guided David to put the Psalms in the order best for instructing what is the course in life we take in Christ, and what we are set to encounter in a world hated and hostile to the Spirit.
