Notes
This Psalm was difficult to arc because it got some random logic-flow. But this is usually the case with people that are troubled. There seems to be no clear logic to there overall thought pattern. Yet, in all of this, David holds on to two things. He cries out for mercy in his trouble and reassures his confidence in the Lord. A good example for those of us who go through difficulty.
