This title is the beginning of a psalm. It literally means 'from the depths' . A human being, who is below, in the deep, calls upon his God who is somewhere high in the sky, to complain about his misery. Does this help? I doubt it. Complaining never helps. God is seen here as a kind of Monarch, a tyrant perhaps, who must be pleased with compliments and petitioned with prayers. I don't think this will work.
