2 O my
God, ['elohiym] I cry [qara'] in the
daytime, [yowmam] but thou hearest [`anah] not; and in the night season, [layil] and am not silent. [duwmiyah] KJV-Interlinear
2 O my God,
I cry by day, but Thou dost not answer; And by night, but I have no rest. NASB
Daytime, means during the daytime hours and refers to incessant plea, or all day long.
Night season, refers to constant and repetitive, or constantly.
Oh my God, is an expression of tremendous pressure, wherein the person praying is in an extreme state and calls upon to the only one who can help.
Hear not, 'anah,' means that God takes no action in response to the prayer, but instead allows the pressure or suffering, to continue. God hears every prayer, but there are times when no action is the correct response.
This psalm is Messianic in nature.
It describes the pressure that was applied to Jesus during the crucifixion. It describes the policy of God regarding the continuation of the crucifixion without interruption.
Jesus prayed constantly and continually, day and night, to let us know that this was an intense time and event. It was the most extreme event in all of history, and yet Jesus endured it voluntarily, 'Not my will but thy will,' as referred to the plan of the Father, the divine plan to secure the salvation opportunity for everyone.
While on the cross, Jesus prayed during the hours of light, when he was on the cross, but prior to the time period of the judgment. He prayed constantly during the darkness hours, when the judgment was being applied.
There was no silence, indicates that His prayers were continual and He never let up.
So, even though Jesus Himself was enduring the many pains and sufferings of the cross, He did not let go of prayer.
Even though God the Father, who is the proper person to whom all prayers are offered, heard all of the prayers, and especially from His own Trinity companion, who had the title of Son of God, He still withheld an answer to alleviate Jesus from those sufferings, because the purpose of the cross which was established in eternity past, was more important than the request of the individual.
No one and nothing, not even God, was going to alter, or change, or terminate the crucifixion. Its purpose was more important than anything else. The event of the cross was the cornerstone event of all of history. Without it, history had no purpose. We would have no purpose.
God created man to spend time and live with God, for all of eternity, as a completed man.
Sin stood in the way of that destiny. Therefore, sin had to be dealt with and removed in order for Gods plan to continue and succeed.
No one could accomplish that plan, except God.
