Psalm 3 KJV Commentary

The main theme of Psalm 3 KJV Commentary is the enemy thinks that we are finished, but Our Lord bless us in front of our adversaries. Though they are many but still our LORD will defeat them all.

This is the Psalm written by King David when he fled from Absalom his son.Psalm 3 shows us how to be confident in the time of troubles.

Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.Psalm 3:1 KJV Commentary

 

Psalm 3 KJV Commentary
Psalm 3 KJV Commentary

 

Here King David asking Lord, how are they increased that trouble me. 

He says to the Lord, many are they that rise up against me. Fear came in King David’s mind.So he is asking for help from the Lord.

In King David’s life, many enemies rise against him and he was surprised to see them because he did no wrong to them.

Many times in our life we face the situation where we also ask God how our challenges are increased. 

How the problems are getting worse, how adverse condition is rising.

Even if so many enemies stand against us we should not fear because LORD is help in trouble time.

Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.                                    Psalm 3:2 KJV Commentary

Psalm 3 KJV Commentary

Here in this verse, King David’s enemy is saying There is no help for him in God. But at the end of the verse, Selah is used.

What is the meaning of Selah? It means to praise or reflect upon what has been said.  

 King David’s enemy thought that God has left him. But that was not true.

Looking at our situation our enemies laugh and they say God has left him and now God is not helping him to come out of this situation.

Though the enemy is saying that there is no help for him in God we don’t have to trust the enemy. 

We have to calm down and think about how big is our God and how He will deliver us from the given situation.

But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. Psalm 3:3 KJV Commentary

 

Psalm 3 KJV Commentary

Here in this verse promise is given by the Lord to King David, that LORD is his shield and glory. LORD lifts the head of his anointed servant.

LORD is a shield to his people. LORD protects them He is Shepherd to his sheep.

 LORD is his glory and those who trust His plans LORD gives glory to them.

But our enemies forget that our LORD is our shield in all the situations of our life. 

Our God is bigger than our problems. Whatever challenges we are facing today our God can turn them into the blessings.

All of our adversaries will look at us and they all will be amazed to see us coming out of that situation and getting blessings from God.

LORD is our honor he lifts our head in front of our enemies.

I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. Psalm 3:4 KJV Commentary

 

Psalm 3 KJV Commentary
Psalm 3 KJV Commentary

 

King David cried unto the LORD and LORD heard him out of his holy hill.

What is the holy hill? It is holy mountain Zion. It represents heaven where LORD dwells.

As King David cried the same way we should cry before LORD in the time of trouble and then LORD will deliver us.

During the time of trouble, we have to cry before LORD. When we come near to God and ask for help, He is ready to help us in all the situations of our life. 

LORD will hear our voice and he will listen to our cry.
The seats in Holy mountain which is the holy hill of Zion.

LORD dwells in heaven and from there He gives answers to our prayers.

Here King David is relaxed because he knows that even if he sleeps LORD will sustain him and protect him. He will awake from sleep.

As King David was relaxed the same way we should be relaxed because LORD is our protector. He is our give us angels to protect us.

If you are worried about any situation and you think the problem is getting severe and you can not come out of it. 

I want to say you just go on your bed and relax and sleep.
Give your worries, problems, challenges into the hand of our LORD and he will deal with all of them.

Sleeping and relaxing during the time of trouble shows the utmost trust in the power of God

During such time ask for peace from God only because of peace we can sleep and relax.

We are safe and secure under the mighty hand of our God.  Here the verse says that we are awaked, this means even in the negative situation we will awake are rise up against.

One testimony I want to give. I know one lady her house was going to be get demolished by a certain group of people. 

I said pray and God will help you, but she was in so much pain she said she is not in condition to pray. 

Then I said go to your bed and sleep and handover your problem into the hand of GOD. 

She did that and guess what, our LORD has blessed her not only with one house but she received two houses. Praise God.

Though the enemies are ten thousand and they set themselves against him still he will not be afraid.

Even ten thousand enemies come against us we should not fear because LORD will smite them and they all will be defeated.

We don’t have to be afraid even if the enemies are in ten thousand in number.

In Psalm 91:7 it is mentioned that thousand will fall before us and ten thousand will fall at our right hand. Such a powerful LORD we serve.

Though our problems are ten thousand in number still we can overcome the problems and come out of it safely.

Though challenges come round about us still we don’t have to fear at all, because we can demolish the challenges by the power of God.

We don’t have to magnify our problems, instead, we have to magnify the power of our LORD.

LORD will Arise and He will save us. Teeth of the ungodly people will be broken.

Arise is mentioned at the beginning of this verse. We have to pray to God that He should Arise and take control of our Life.

LORD is always ready to take control of our life but are we ready to hand over our lives and submit ourselves to the plans of the LORD that is the big question.

Even ten thousands of enemy come against me still you can save me from them. You are my shield and my glory

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?   Psalm 2:1 KJV Commentary

 
Psalm 2 KJV Commentary
Psalm 2 KJV Commentary

Who is heathen? Heathen is a person who does not belong to any known religion.
Heathen plans to rebel against LORD. Heathen is in tumult condition. 

Here the author asks the question of why do the heathen rage because he is surprised at there reaction and ahead he writes the people imagine a vain thing

Their imaginations will go in vain, they are useless in the eyes of LORD

We see the rebellion of the people against God in the Bible many times.

 The main example we can take is from the Babylon where people gathered themselves under the rulership of Nimrod. But God with his wisdom scatter them. 

What is the meaning of rage? Rage means violent and anger which is not able to control.
Why do people imagine a vain thing? 

Because they don’t believe that there is a God there hope is lost. Same way people meditate upon vain things.

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Psalm 2:2 KJV Commentary

What is the meaning of counsel? It means advising on the issue. People gather together against the LORD

Even if the entire army of the world gathers together to fight against LORD it will be of no use, because LORD will smite them with the breath of his nostrils. 

There is no point in gathering together as kings of the earth set themselves.

Rulers take counsel together, but there plans will not be established. They conspire together. 

This all they are planning against the LORD, and his anointed.

Here people take counsel against LORD and his anointed servants because without unity they can’t harm the anointed one. 

Scripture says touch not my anointed and do no harm to my prophets. (Psalm 105:15)
Kings of the earth take a hopeless stand and they gather together against God’s people.

Psalm 2 KJV Commentary
Psalm 2 KJV Commentary

 

They don’t want to obey the LORD and they want to set there own law and follow there own percepts. 

People think that the love of the LORD is a bondage to them. LORD never binds anyone instead he give freewill to everyone.

They want to break down the fetters. They think they are slaves to LORD. They want to get free from the LORD. They want to burst their bands asunder

They want to break their bands asunder because they are disobedient people. They say let us cast away their cords from us because they want to live with there own choice and not as per the will of God. 

Jesus said in Matthew 11: 30 his yoke is not heavy and it is very light because it is the yoke of love which protects us from the entire evil one.

They say in let us get release from the control of God.

They want to tear off the ropes and break the chains.
