Psalms 107:6 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 107:6

Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble
To be directed in their way, and for food and drink, as travellers do when in such distress. Natural men, even the very Heathens, when in distress, will cry unto God for relief, as Jonah's mariners did, ( Jonah 1:5 ) . It is a time of trouble with awakened sinners, when they are convinced of sin by the Spirit of God; when they are pricked to the heart with a sense of it; when the terrors of death and hell get hold of them; when they see themselves lost and undone, and in a wrong way, and know not what to do; when they find themselves starving and ready to perish; and then they cry, that is, pray, unto the Lord, the God of their lives, whose ears are open to their cries.

And he delivered them out of their distresses;
by leading them in a right way, and by satisfying and filling their hungry souls with good things, as it is explained, ( Psalms 107:7 Psalms 107:9 ) .
