John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Lamentations 3:55

I called upon thy name, O Lord
As in times past, so in the present distress; when all hope was gone, and all help failed, still there was a God to go to, and call upon: out of the low dungeon;
or "dungeon of lownesses" F18; the lowest dungeon, the deepest distress, a man or people could be in; yet then and there it is not too late to call upon the Lord; and there may be hope of deliverance out of such an estate by him.
