For thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble - That is, he looked to the time when he would feel this; when looking back he could say this; when in view of it he would praise God.

In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch.

They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But the LORD was my stay.
