Psalms Chapter 3 Discussion

    In deed our God is the author and sustainer of our life Glory and honor return to Him.
  • Drama F Watson on Psalms 3
    God will never forsake us his children. He is so gracious to answer our prayers. It doesn't matter how big or how little our problems are, he is always there to forgive and help. I just needed to be reminded of Psalms 3 today. He is the lifter of our heads. We are not to bow down to this world because we are not of this world. David knew his God and how he had come through for him in the past from the time he was a little boy. WE HAVE A HISTORY with God. We KNOW he can do anything for us because of that. He may not answer right then and he may not answer how we want, but rest assured he will answer and it will be the right answer and the right time. I can look back when I lost my mother, father and brother in less than 7 months and my father and brother in less than a week. God's timing was perfect as each one stepped out of this world. If you are not saved reading this, I would ask you to just believe in Jesus and ask him to save you. He will do that for you because you are loved by him and you are important to him.

    Why his son wanted to kill him
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 3
    The background to why Absalom wanted to kill his father, King David, would be too long to share here. I recommend you read 2 Samuel from Chapters 13 to 18 to get the full picture.

    But in a nutshell: Absalom had his step-brother Amnon killed as revenge for Amnon's incest with Absalom's sister (Amnon's step-sister). As the older brother, Absalom would have been next in line to the throne after David but David learned prophetically that his younger son, Solomon, would be the next king. This caused Absalom much anger & he sought to kill his father David.

    Absalom by this time had gathered a very large following & an army as well. David now feared his son, but still loved him & wanted him kept safe. However, in the midst of battle between the armies of David & Absalom, Absalom rode fast on his mule & his long flowing hair got caught in the low branches of a tree on which he hung. And one, Joab, then thrust three arrows into the helpless Absalom so that he died. King David was in great grief after getting news of the death of his son & we have that much quoted cry of his: "And the king was much moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept: and as he went, thus he said, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!".

    This is just a very quick summary for you; to get a fuller understanding of this account, you will need to read those chapters.

    If it was your mate that did the adultery, then you may divorce them and are free to marry another.
  • Terri on Psalms 3:3
    I think that this is a great verse to remind us that we are safe with Jesus Christ and we don't have to worry how big the enemies army is!

  • Ekunniyi adeola on Psalms 3
    CommentThough God loved David not because he did commit sin but because he always repent and forsake his sin and felt sorry to have done that
  • R Harris on Psalms 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.

    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

    CHRIST alone take us home.
  • Shay on Psalms 3
    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.
  • Michael on Psalms 3
    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.
  • Vanessa on Psalms 3
    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.
  • Linda on Psalms 3
    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-
  • Camilla Nesbitt on Psalms 3
    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.
  • EGWU CLETUS on Psalms 3
    It gives me hope and strenght
  • Bob-the-builder on Psalms 3
    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.
  • BSP on Psalms 3
    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.
  • Mild Bill,saved by grace on Psalms 3
    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.
  • A disciple on Psalms 3
    "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 on Psalms 3
    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 on Psalms 3
    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.
