poor man [`aniy] cried [qara'], and the LORD
[Yahovah] heard [shama`] him, and saved [yasha`] him
out of all his troubles [tsarah]. KJV-Interlinear
6 This poor
man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. ESV
Referring to himself, David also refers to his miserable condition.
His condition was not one of poor health, but of living a life as an outcast and a fugitive due to Saul’s constant pursuit.
David and all that were with him, were hunted constantly. They had few friends in the region and few who would not hesitate to report their whereabouts.
So, the world, as it were, was totally against him. Only God was there to offer support.
But, know this for certain, that God only offers support to those who are obedient to His mandates.
If you look to God, but you mostly disregard His mandates, then your help will come from the world. And since the world offers little or no help, then a person who is non-compliant toward Gods rules, does not have much to look to, as far as help is concerned.
But David and all that were with him, looked to God constantly. They kept the scriptures as far as they had them, but more than that, they kept the scriptures that they knew in their heads, in the forefront of their thoughts.
Doctrine on paper is of no use until it is transferred into the soul through the learning process.
And as food for the body is eaten daily, so too, doctrine which is food for the soul, should also be studied and learned daily, and thus inculcated into the soul.
Therefore, with doctrine in the soul, then Gods help is always there.
Without doctrine, you have nothing at all.
