In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
Night — Which to others was a time of rest and quietness.
 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. /*Selah*/.
Troubled — Yea, the thoughts of God were now a matter of trouble, because he was angry with me.
Overwhelmed — So far was I from finding relief.
 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
Waking — By continual grief.
 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
The days — The mighty works of God in former times.
 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
My song — The mercies of God vouchsafed to me, and to his people, which have obliged me to sing his praises, not only in the day, but also by night.
 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
Cut off — His peculiar people.
 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
I said — These suspicions of God's faithfulness proceed from the weakness of my faith.
The years — The years wherein God hath done great and glorious works, which are often ascribed to God's right-hand.
 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
In holiness — God is holy and just, and true in all his works.
 The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
Afraid — And stood still, as men astonished, do.
 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
Poured — When the Israelites passed over the sea.
Arrows — Hail-stones or lightnings.
 Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
Not known — Because the water returned and covered them.
 Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
Leddest — First through the sea, and afterwards through the wilderness, with singular care and tenderness, as a shepherd doth his sheep.
