    NOTES - PSALMS 3

    Psalms 2 - Psalms 4 >> - HELP - FACEBOOK - GR FORUMS - GODRULES ON YOUTUBE    




    PS 3 David complains to God of his enemies, ver. 1, 2. Comforts himself in God, and the experience of his goodness, ver. 3-6. Triumphs in the salvation of God, ver. 7, 8 A psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.

    Verse 2. My soul - Of me: the soul being commonly put for the person. In God - God hath utterly forsaken him. Selah - This word is no where used but in this poetical book, and in the song of Habakkuk. Probably it was a musical note, directing the singer either to lift up his voice, to make a pause, or to lengthen the tune. But withal, it is generally placed at some remarkable passage; which gives occasion to think that it served also to quicken the attention of the singer and hearer.

    Verse 3. A shield - My defense. My glory - Thou hast formerly given, and wilt farther give occasion of glorying in thy power and favour. Lifter up - Thou wilt restore me to my former power and dignity.

    Verse 4. His hill - Out of heaven, so called, chap. xv, 1.

    Verse 5. Slept - Securely, casting all my cares upon God. Awaked - After a sweet and undisturbed sleep.

    Verse 7. Cheek bone - Which implies contempt and reproach. Teeth - Their strength and the instruments of their cruelty. He compares them to wild beasts.
