Psalm 3:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I laid me down and slept - He who knows that he has God for his Protector may go quietly and confidently to his bed, not fearing the violence of the fire, the edge of the sword, the designs of wicked men, nor the influence of malevolent spirits.
I awaked - Though humanly speaking there was reason to fear I should have been murdered in my bed, as my most confidential servants had been corrupted by my rebellious son; yet God, my shield, protected me. I both slept and awaked; and my life is still whole in me.

"'I will grant peace in the land, and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid. I will remove wild beasts from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country.
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand-- when I awake, I am still with you.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
