Psalms 3

Chapter 3

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.
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.
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 Gods promise, and tried the same, his faith increased marvellously.
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.
