Backstage question for the nation of Israel: Who is going to ___________ us?

Psalms 107:23-29 (NASB95)
23 Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters; 24 They have seen the
works of the LORD, And His wonders in the deep.
25 For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lifted up the waves of the sea. 26 They rose up
to the heavens, they went down to the depths; Their soul melted away in their misery. 27 They
reeled and staggered like a drunken man, And were at their wits' end.
28 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, And He brought them out of their distresses. 29 He
caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed.

nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said
to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?"
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down

and it was completely calm.
40 He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
