Yahweh sustains me (Ps 3:5-3:6)

“I lie down and sleep.

I wake again.

Yahweh sustains me.

I am not afraid of

Ten thousands of people.

I am not afraid of

Those who have set themselves against me all around.”

David was not afraid to sleep because he would awake. Yahweh was like his body guard and sustained him in all things. He was not afraid of 10,000 people even if they had him surrounded. He would still trust in Yahweh. There was no “Selah” or pause here as in the preceding verses.
