Psalms Chapter 3

Psalms 3:1

psa 3:1

"A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son." LORD, how are they (a) increased that trouble me! many [are] they that rise up against me.

Psalms 3:2

psa 3:2

Many [there be] which say of my soul, [There is] no help for him in God. (b) Selah.

Psalms 3:6

psa 3:6

I will not be afraid of (c) ten thousands of people, that have set [themselves] against me round about.

(c) When he considered the truth of God's promise, and tried the same, his faith increased marvellously.

Psalms 3:8

psa 3:8

(d) Salvation [belongeth] unto the LORD: thy blessing [is] upon thy people. Selah.

(d) No matter how great or many the dangers may be, yet God always has ways to deliver his.
