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.

A disciple's Psalms Chapter 3 comment on 1/07/2018, 12:15pm...

Hello Bill, Happy and healthy New Year to you! It is very moving to read the story of Absalom's rebellion and so terrible destruction! I think its important that the Spirit had David put this Psalm; about probably the most tragic and dangerous events in his life; in the beginning of the Books. And following the message of the 2nd Psalm, really brings the truth home to our real lives even stronger.

The longer we are in this world,the enormity of sin we see and understand/experience the effects of.Our confidence in God has he given to us through exposure to his word."Faith cometh by hearing,and hearing the word of God."Rom.10:17 God will triumph over the tens of thousands of peoples,and we will see it,in his timing,at his pleasure, as his people have blessings unto the remainder of eternity.
