I PRESSED ON
PSALM 3:3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts my head.
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY A shield for me; which denotes the advantage of that protection.
BARNES' NOTES To lift up the head, therefore, or to raise one up, is to relieve his distresses, or to take away his troubles. Such a helper, David says, he had always found God to be, and he looks to him as one who is able to help him still. That is, he feels that God can so entirely take away his present griefs as to reinstate him in his former happy and honorable condition.
