The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLamentations 3:57
Thou drewest near in the day [that] I called upon thee…
When persons draw nigh to God in a way of duty, and particularly in
this of prayer, and calling on his name; he draws nigh to them in a way
of grace and mercy, and manifests himself to them, and works salvation
for them. The Targum is,
``thou didst cause an angel to draw near to deliver me in the
day that I prayed unto thee:''
thou saidst, fear not;
any of thine enemies; or that thou shouldest not
be delivered from them; see (Isaiah 41:10) .
