Psalms 3:1



1 A Psalm [mizmowr] of David, [David] when he fled [barach] from [paniym] Absalom ['Abiyshalowm] his son. [ben] LORD, [Yahovah] how are they increased [rabab] that trouble [tsar] me! many [rab] are they that rise up [quwm] against me. KJV-Interlinear



1A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.

O Lord, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me. NASB



The story of Absalom is found in 2 Sam. 15. Absalom was one of David’s sons. Absalom was a discontented son who lacked for nothing, yet wanted more and more, and was never satisfied.


Absalom lacked truth within his own soul, and as such, was not hesitant to turn against even his own father, David the king.


If Absalom lived today, he would be categorized as a very liberal politician and a rebel to boot. He complained about the government, and complained about how bad life was for everyone.


Then here is his objective. By complaining to everyone, he won the hearts and following of a few to begin with, and then he won the following of more and more people as time went by.


His method and promise, ‘If you will make me the judge, then there will be justice for everyone.’


Absalom was a deceiver. He had his own agenda, and that was to become king. He made promises that everyone wanted to hear, but that he could not and had no intention to, deliver. He was going to take over the government and then take over every aspect of people’s lives, and then make life perfect for everyone.


Does this remind you of anything or anyone in our current day?


The world typically lacks doctrine, because the world ignores doctrine. And when a world lacks and is indifferent toward truth, then it will follow anything and anyone who makes promises that appeal to the sin nature.


The sin nature wants something for nothing; Wants blame to be placed on someone else; Wants no responsibility for self; Wants someone else to pay; Hates, in varying degrees, all aspects of divine establishment.


And though this psalm is speaking from David toward all those who are against him, it illustrates the nature of people and how they increase in numbers against truth, and therefore against God, and by association, against believers who are positive toward doctrine and advancing in their spiritual lives.


Truth brings prosperity and happiness and stability into ones life.


Lies bring a false sense of reality into ones mind, making good things out to be bad, and replacing good with bad, then making it seem that the bad is really good.


Absalom was a deceiver. He used the ignorance of people to deceive them.


Ignorant people are not completely innocent, because they want the promises of deception, knowing full well that they are not legitimate.


When the numbers grow, then trouble grows and when trouble grows then rebellion is not far off.


Rebellion against truth always ends in disaster for everyone.
