Psalms 69:20

Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and (q) I looked [for some] to take pity, but [there was] none; and for comforters, but I found none.

(q) He shows men that it is vain to put our trust in men in our great necessity, but that our comfort only depends on God: for man increases our sorrows, then diminishes them, (John 19:29).

daily we see people who have made wrong decisions even when they knew better===but we are all like paul--we are all the same, read romans 7--we know right and don't do it---so we can't judge others ---reproach---we need to look at others like a fireman--or medic looks at people in trouble---as people we run toward to help--- whom we can help and not run away--we need to comfort people where they are in their trouble.
