Psalm 3 is a hopeful psalm. David starts by noting that great and powerful people have persecuted him, including his own son, Absalom. Then he expresses his hopeful trust that God will deliver him from these travails. Then, in verse 7, he says:
לֹא אִירָא מֵרִבְבוֹת עָם / I will not fear the myriads of people
אֲשֶׁר סָבִיב שָׁתוּ עָלָי. / who drank a round on me.
I guess he bought Absalom's people a round of drinks, and he's therefore not afraid of them. Is that a correct understanding? If so, this doesn't seem to fit in with the psalm's theme of trust in God; an explanation would be appreciated. If not, can someone explain this verse?
