How deep are your depths?
He brought me out of the pit of misery. (Ps 39:3) What is the pit of misery? The depth of wickedness…. From where did he bring you out? From a certain depth. In another Psalm you cry out, “Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord” (Ps 129:1). Those who cry out from the depths, are not completely in the depths; their very cry lifts them. Others are more deeply in the depths because they do not even know they are in the depths. (Augustine, Enarr. in Ps 39, 3; PL 36, c. 434)
[Sunt alii profundius in profundo, qui nec sentiunt se esse in profundo.]
