The psalmists cry out to the Lord for salvation and desperately call out to God for His deliverance and help in their troubled circumstances. In verse 3 through 9, the psalmists give reason for their for their cries and their prayers. It is in the circumstances of loneliness, trouble, the vast number of enemies seeking their life, and describes in detail the depths of their trouble and they pit they are in. All human beings living in a sinful world can certainly understand this psalm. We all feel the burden of being in a place “in over our heads,” the impending doom whether it is failed relationships, finances, stress, work, school, and the difficulties in life.
