Psalms 3

Verse 1

3:1 [A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.] LORD, how are they {a} increased that trouble me! many [are] they that rise up against me.

(a) This was a token of his stable faith, that for all his troubles he turned to God.

Verse 2

3:2 Many [there be] which say of my soul, [There is] no help for him in God. {b} Selah.

(b) Selah here signifies a lifting up of the voice, to cause us to consider the sentence as a thing of great importance.

Verse 6

3:6 I will not be afraid of

(c) ten thousands of people, that have set [themselves] against me round about.

(c) When he considered the truth of God’s promise, and tried the same, his faith increased marvellously.

Verse 8

3:8 {d} Salvation [belongeth] unto the LORD: thy blessing [is] upon thy people. Selah.

(d) No matter how great or many the dangers may be, yet God always has ways to deliver his.
