Psalm 3:3,4: ” But you, O LORD, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the LORD with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill.” The phrase “but You, O Lord” changes the mood of psalm from dejection to confidence. David says three things of the Lord: 1) When no one would help David, God was his shield. 2) When David had nothing to treasure, God was his glory.
3) When no one would encourage him, God himself would encourage him and lift his head. Holy hill is a poetic reference to God’s dwelling in heaven.
