Studying Psalm 3

Step ONE - Observation

What are some of the key idea or word that has been repeated throughout the Psalm?

Q: How many times did the word ‘deliverance/salvation’ (depending on version of bible) appear?

Step TWO - Interpretation


This is a psalm of David. He wrote this when he was fleeing from his son Absalom.
Q: What is the theme of the psalm?

Q: What is the key verse?

Q: Was David already delivered when he wrote the psalm?

Q: Was he eventually delivered?

Q: What helped him to persevere to the end?

Step THREE - Application


How to face challenges in our lives?


1) Confront the challenges before the Lord (v1 and 2)

2) Confess who God is (v3 to v6)

3) Claim the promises of God for me (v7 and 8)

Is there an area in your life right now which you find it very challenging to manage? Lift it up to the Lord now and believe in God whose blessings are on His people.
