I cried unto God with my voice
Which is to be understood of prayer, and that vocal, and which is importunate and fervent, being made in distress; see ( Psalms 3:4 ) , or "my voice was unto God" F8, "and I cried"; it was directed to him, and expressed in a very loud and clamorous way:
even unto God with my voice;
or "my voice was unto God"; which is repeated to show that he prayed again and again, with great eagerness and earnestness, his case being a very afflicted one:
and he gave ear unto me;
his prayer was not without success; God is a God hearing and answering prayer, according to his promise, ( Psalms 50:15 ) .
