But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
King James Bible
But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
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
CommentaryClarke'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
How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods
Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,
Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David. I will exalt you, LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
But may you have mercy on me, LORD; raise me up, that I may repay them.
