Psalms 56:3 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 56:3

What time I am afraid
It was a time of fear with him now; he was afraid of Achish king of Gath, ( 1 Samuel 21:12 ) ; so believers have their times of fear; about their interest in the love, and grace, and covenant of God; about their sins and corruptions, and the prevalence of them, fearing they shall perish by them; and about their enemies, who are many, lively, and strong;

I will trust in thee;
trust and confidence in the Lord is the best antidote against fears; who is unchangeable in his love, in whom is everlasting strength, and who is faithful and true to every word of promise; and therefore there is great reason to trust in him, and not be afraid.

Psalms 56:3 In-Context

1 Have pity on me, O God, because people are harassing me. All day long warriors oppress me.
2 All day long my enemies spy on me. They harass me. There are so many fighting against me.
3 Even when I am afraid, I still trust you.
4 I praise the word of God. I trust God. I am not afraid. What can mere flesh [and blood] do to me?
5 All day long my enemies twist my words. Their every thought is an evil plan against me.
