1. Exposition

Where else does the word used here for "cry out" occur?

Judges 3:15 (ESV)

15 Then the people of Israel cried out to the LORD, and the LORD raised up for them a deliverer, Ehud, the son of Gera, the Benjaminite, a left-handed man. The people of Israel sent tribute by him to Eglon the king of Moab.

The word used here to describe Israel’s crying out is the same that is used to express their cry in the midst of bondage (Exodus 2:23).
