These are the words of a man who is in physical and mental anguish because of his sins, who feels all alone in the world. His only hope is the one he has offended most. Yet, he pleads for the LORD’s forgiveness and restoration. He waits for the LORD, confident that the LORD will answer. He only pleads that it be soon, so that his enemies do not use his down time to ridicule his faith in the LORD.
LORD, come quickly and rescue us. Do not let us be put to shame, because we hope in you.
