New International Version
LORD, they came to you in their distress; when you disciplined them, they could barely whisper a prayer.
King James Bible
LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
Darby Bible Translation
Jehovah, in trouble they sought thee; they poured out [their] whispered prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
World English Bible
Yahweh, in trouble they have visited you. They poured out a prayer when your chastening was on them.
Young's Literal Translation
O Jehovah, in distress they missed Thee, They have poured out a whisper, Thy chastisement is on them.
Isaiah 26:16 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Lord, in trouble have they visited thee "O Jehovah, in affliction we have sought thee" - So the Septuagint and two MSS. have פקדנוך pekadnucha, in the first person plural. And so perhaps it should be צקנו tsaknu, in the first person; but how the Septuagint read this word is not clear; and this last member of the verse is extremely obscure.
For למו lamo, "on them," the Septuagint read לנו lanu, "on us," in the first person likewise; a frequent mistake; see note on Isaiah 10:29.

The answer carries us back a couple of chapters, to the great picture drawn by the prophet of a world-wide judgment, which is followed by a burst of song from the ransomed people of Jehovah, like Miriam's chant by the shores of the Red Sea. …

"For the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus Hath Made Me Free from the Law of Sin and Death. "
Condemned to Die
The people came to Moses and said, "We sinned when we spoke against the LORD and against you. Pray that the LORD will take the snakes away from us." So Moses prayed for the people.
They told him, "This is what Hezekiah says: This day is a day of distress and rebuke and disgrace, as when children come to the moment of birth and there is no strength to deliver them.
They say to wood, 'You are my father,' and to stone, 'You gave me birth.' They have turned their backs to me and not their faces; yet when they are in trouble, they say, 'Come and save us!'
Then I will return to my lair until they have borne their guilt and seek my face-- in their misery they will earnestly seek me."
