This past Sunday, Paul Briggs helpfully put Psalm 130 in front of us as a church. I confess I’m not a big fan of the dentist experience, so Paul’s humor about the tooth pain definitely got my attention (very sorry for you, Paul—it surely wasn’t funny then). We might indeed “cry out” for lots of reasons in our life, whether excruciating toothache or excruciating emotional pain. But the cry of Psalm 130:1, “Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!” is a cry altogether different.
