Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

I cried unto God with my voice - That is, he cried or prayed audibly. It was not mere mental prayer. See the notes at Psalm 3:4.

Even unto God with my voice - The repetition here is emphatic. The idea is that it was an earnest or fervent cry. Compare the notes at 2 Corinthians 12:8.

And he gave ear unto me - See Psalm 5:1, note; Psalm 17:6, note.

The whole are to be admonished that they despise not the opportunity of winning health for ever.
