Yahweh saves and blesses his people (Ps 3:8-3:8)

“Deliverance belongs to Yahweh.

May your blessing be upon your people!


Once again, David believed that he was saved by Yahweh. He was delivered from the forces of his son, who also died as indicated in 2 Samuel, chapter 18. David was upset about that. However, he did want Yahweh to bless all his people. The ending of this psalm has the “Selah” or musical interlude pause.
