Psalm 3:3
Parallel Verses

But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.

King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
But thou, Jehovah, art a shield about me; my glory, and the lifter up of my head.

World English Bible
But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.

Young's Literal Translation
And Thou, O Jehovah, art a shield for me, My honour, and lifter up of my head.

Psalm 3:3 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Thou, O Lord art a shield - As a shield covers and defends the body from the strokes of an adversary, so wilt thou cover and defend me from them that rise up against me.

The lifter up of mine head - Thou wilt restore me to the state from which my enemies have cast me down. This is the meaning of the phrase; and this he speaks prophetically. He was satisfied that the deliverance would take place, hence his confidence in prayer; so that we find him, with comparative unconcern, laying himself down in his bed, expecting the sure protection of the Almighty.

The Godly are in Some Sense Already Blessed
I proceed now to the second aphorism or conclusion, that the godly are in some sense already blessed. The saints are blessed not only when they are apprehended by God, but while they are travellers to glory. They are blessed before they are crowned. This seems a paradox to flesh and blood. What, reproached and maligned, yet blessed! A man that looks upon the children of God with a carnal eye and sees how they are afflicted, and like the ship in the gospel which was covered with waves' (Matthew 8:24),
Thomas Watson—The Beatitudes: An Exposition of Matthew 5:1-12
