< Back to Psalms Chapter 3

    This is a wonderful Psalm by King David of Confidence, Faith, Trust in God while facing immense trouble of a rebellious uprising led by his own son Absalom. He begins by acknowledging the great multitude assembled against him, but then refuses to be afraid knowing that God has delivered him from past troubles. David looses no sleep over the situation, and ends the Psalm with rejoicing and praise unto the Lord. A popular song is even written after this Psalm "Thou, O Lord." Thank you Lord.

    I have been so low,and depressed with my families health problems, financial problems over the last fourteen years, even the Lord has been blessing us through it all, I am still having some of the problems and not been able to sleep. Just yesterday I found about reading Psalms chapter 3, So last night after not being unable to sleep, and after four hours of not being able to go to sleep, I thought I would start reading Psalms 3, I did three times and before I finished the third reading I fell asleep. This is the Honest to God Truth. Oh yea I have always studied the Bible since childhood, This was my Mothers requirements in her house, and the one habit I will carry to my grave. Thanks Mom

    PSALM chapter three for the third day of the first month of 2020, Guided by Holy Spirit on 11 day of 12 month 2019 to begin with PSALM chapter 11, I missed a few days but caught up now. This one shows me of my life as a child. Growing up as outcast among classmates and black sheep in the family . I became withdrawn. Low esteem suicidal. For all of that I was institutionalized many times but GOD

    Let's remember that while David did sin and was a man of war, he knew how to break his heart before God. God did serve His justice upon David by not allowing him the joy of building temple and he allowed David to suffer greatly due to choices. David was not perfect and made many mistakes yet God still chose him. Just as He does with us today, but remember to not misuse His grace toward us.

    Asking God to slap the faces of our enemies so hard as to break their teeth seems like a strange thing to ask Him to do. I cannot imagine Jesus doing that to someone.

    It was David's sin that caused such pain, he thought he could hide it, he knew in his heart he couldn't, he loved God with all his heart soul and might and nor can we. Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

    David triumphed over many fears by yrusting the. Lord - he is like me- my fears overwhelm me- i want to run - then I remember my hope is in yhe Lord who made heaven earth- He sees everything going on one day will call us home- no mpre fear or anxiety-

    What I love about this particular Biblical Scripture is despite of his sins he still prayed , rejoiced in God . This shows us that no matter what we do we all have a High Priest ( JESUS ) who loves us very much and forgives no matter what we’ve done. His love is eternal and he said David he called him by name David I love thee come and sup with me and belong to me as my dear friend. David prayed.

    To Bob the builder. II Samuel 12:7-14 It all goes back to David's disobedience. A man that willingly desires to commit adultery should heed his punishment. Verse 5. Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house...For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel. Absalom's hatred goes back to the humiliation of his brother's incest that David did not correct.
    It gives me hope and strenght
  • Bob-the-builder
    The saddest part of this whole passage, is that his "enemy" was his own son. Didn't David teach his children about the Lord? You'd think that a "man after God's own heart" would have been more diligent about instructing his family.

    Verses 2 and 3~Although many were saying that David had nobody on his side, they did not acknowledge the fact that Jehovah God was on his side. With the most powerful God in the universe on his side, David really did not need another human on his side.

    David knew the Lord,before he met his enemies,who did not know him or the Lord.We may hear the voice and sayings of God's enemies,our enemies,but truth is only in what God has done and will do.Sustaining us,giving us rest and insight,move us to sing God's praises and hope in him.Faith/trust comes by hearing the Word of God,and so we should grow daily unto his glory for his purposes.

    "LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me." Written for 2 Sam 15:12 "And the conspiracy was strong; for the people increased continually with Absalom;" The Holy Spirit guided David to put the Psalms in the order best for instructing what is the course in life we take in Christ, and what we are set to encounter in a world hated and hostile to the Spirit.
  • A disciple
    Hello Bill, Happy and healthy New Year to you! It is very moving to read the story of Absalom's rebellion and so terrible destruction! I think its important that the Spirit had David put this Psalm; about probably the most tragic and dangerous events in his life; in the beginning of the Books. And following the message of the 2nd Psalm, really brings the truth home to our real lives even stronger.
  • Mild Bill
    The longer we are in this world,the enormity of sin we see and understand/experience the effects of.Our confidence in God has he given to us through exposure to his word."Faith cometh by hearing,and hearing the word of God."Rom.10:17 God will triumph over the tens of thousands of peoples,and we will see it,in his timing,at his pleasure, as his people have blessings unto the remainder of eternity.

    We are in the vast minority of the world.
    We will have many come at us for our
    faith in the Lord Jesus. Jesus said we
    are not above Him. If He was persecuted,
    so will his followers. When we go through
    sore trails, people led by the spirit of this world,
    scoff, these say to us, 'Aha, where is
    their God now? We stay steadfast in faith
    and the belief in the Love Jesus gave to us.

    An amazing and reassuring psalm 3:3
  • Annie
    The book of Psalm 3 was ministered at service and soon as I arrive home I began to study it over again. I realize God will give you great peace in the battle set before us.
  • A disciple
    BSP; Amen! It is interesting the way God had David put the most dreadful time of his life at the beginning of the Psalms. The matter around Absalom was not confined to his house alone; but was used by God to make manifest what was in the hearts of every man. The strong delusion and conspiracy grew as it did because so many who had known the blessing of God's Anointed turned instead to rebellion.
  • BSP
    Verse 5: Even though David was dealing with some very distressing circumstances, in verse 5 he went to sleep and left matter in God's hands. We must trust in God and take things one day at a time.
  • Nola Brown
    Psalm 3 show me that David was a real person with real enemy, problem, and fears. Nevertheless through years of experiences with God's unwavering love, protection, and faithfulness David's resolve remained steadfast in-spite of his initial responses. This is also letting us know that like David, we all will experience struggles of every kind in our life time, but God is faithful and never change.

    Our time, now, are the "Bible times" allotted to us, recorded in the memory of God, for eternity.

    At some times or the other we witness our friends or our kids or family rise up against us ,but God in all his mercy and grace protected us from danger ,and any that try to harm us both personally ,and spiritually .please let us give God the praised ,and glory for such a great work. He had promised never to leave us or forsaken us Amen !!!!
