New Living Translation:
“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he rescued them from their distress.”
New English Translation:
“They cried out to the Lord in their distress; he delivered them from their troubles.”
Common English Bible:
“So they cried out to the LORD in their distress, and God delivered them from their desperate circumstances.”
“Then they called to the Lord for help, and he saved them from their troubles.”
Beloved, this verse of the scripture is very important because even in the entire chapter of Psalm 107, the same verse was repeated three more times in verses 13, 19, and 28 respectively. The Israelites called upon God in their distress and He delivered them. God wants you to call on Him, He said it, that, if you call on Him in times of trouble, He will answer and will be glorified. What is that circumstance, trouble, distress, situation, difficulty, etc that confronts you? Don’t loose hope, call upon the only true and faithful God, who is able to do what no man can do for you. He will help you at the nick of time. Not as if you should not ask human for help when you need one, but your best bet is to talk to God first, and trust Him. He alone can truly help and deliver you from every form of distress or trouble.
