Psalm 107:12 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Therefore he brought down their heart - Their pride; their self-sufficiency; their self-complacency. They thought that they could do without God; they relied on their own resources, and were self-satisfied; but God showed them that all this was vain, and humbled them, as he often does the proud, in the dust.
With labour - With trouble; with affliction; with disappointment; with reverses; with sorrow. The Hebrew word - עמל ‛âmâl - would include all this. Compare Genesis 41:51; Deuteronomy 26:7; Job 3:10; Job 16:2.
They fell down - They, as it were, "stumbled" - for so the Hebrew word means. They were walking along with a haughty air, and a high look, and suddenly they stumbled and fell.
And there was none to help - No God to interpose; no nation to befriend them; no human arm to be stretched out for their deliverance. God gave them up, helpless, to the just consequences of their folly and wickedness.

The Privilege of Prayer
Be not far from me, for trouble is near; For there is none to help.
For he will deliver the needy when he cries for help, The afflicted also, and him who has no helper.
O LORD our God, You answered them; You were a forgiving God to them, And yet an avenger of their evil deeds.
