Psalm 69:2 (a) Sometimes sorrows are so heavy, so numerous and so strong that they seem to envelop the whole person's heart, soul and life. Sometimes GOD's people are submerged under an avalanche of disappointment and defeat that surge over the soul. CHRIST had that experience at Calvary. David had that experience during the years that Saul persecuted him.

Isaiah 8:8 (a) This figure is used to describe the invasion of the King of Assyria into the nation of Israel. The hordes of the enemy would overrun the entire country, destroying as they went, and making slaves of the people. (See also Isaiah 10:22; Isaiah 28:17; Jeremiah 47:2; Daniel 11:10).

Joel 2:24 (a) Here we see a beautiful picture of the great blessings that GOD would bring to His people Israel in the time of their restoration. There will be an abundance of every good thing, and the hearts of all His people will rejoice and be satisfied.
