    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 138:3

    In the day when I cried - Referring to some former period of his life when he was in trouble.

    Thou answeredst me - In the very day when I called, thou gavest me the answer: that is, immediately.

    And strengthenedst me with strength in my soul - literally, "Thou didst embolden - or, didst make me courageous with strength." Thou didst enable me to meet danger, and to overcome fear. It would seem probable that this was on some occasion when he was in danger from his enemies.
