Wesley's Notes for Psalms 3:2


3:2 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.


Discussion for Psalms 3:2

  • I thought Selah meant a form of kneeling and prayer in humility and earnestness nowhere in my music studies have I come across Selah. Just a thought and also not sure . Many people decide on other 's fate by condeming, "He 's been a bad father or husband he 'll surely never have God 's mercy. " This verse re iterates God 's ways aren 't what people think it is. God loves a sinner who repents. Jesus sat with Whores and Criminals and Murderers and even had time for the unbeliever and the Priests and Pharisees were appalled and disgusted that he would even been seen with them. "Ye without sin cast the first Stone! " Those damned by Humans, not necessary will they be forgotten by God and His Mercy.
