Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 3:7

_ _ Arise, O Lord — God is figuratively represented as asleep to denote His apparent indifference (Psalms 7:6). The use of “cheekbone” and “teeth” represents his enemies as fierce, like wild beasts ready to devour (Psalms 27:2), and smiting their cheekbone (1 Kings 22:24) denotes violence and insult.

_ _ thou hast broken — God took his part, utterly depriving the enemy of power to injure.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 3:4-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 3:7

Cheek bone — Which implies contempt and reproach. Teeth — Their strength and the instruments of their cruelty. He compares them to wild beasts.
