Lamentations 3:57 Meaning and Commentary

Lamentations 3:57

Thou drewest near in the day [that] I called upon thee
When persons draw nigh to God in a way of duty, and particularly in this of prayer, and calling on his name; he draws nigh to them in a way of grace and mercy, and manifests himself to them, and works salvation for them. The Targum is,

``thou didst cause an angel to draw near to deliver me in the day that I prayed unto thee:''
thou saidst, fear not;
any of thine enemies; or that thou shouldest not be delivered from them; see ( Isaiah 41:10 ) .
