Psalm 142

A maskil of David. When he was in the cave. A prayer.

  1. I cry aloud to the Lord;
    I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.
  2. I pour out before him my complaint;
    before him I tell my trouble.
  3. When my spirit grows faint within me,it is you who watch over my way.
    In the path where I walk
    people have hidden a snare for me.
  4. Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
    no one is concerned for me.
    I have no refuge;
    no one cares for my life.
  5. I cry to you, Lord;
    I say, “You are my refuge,
    my portion in the land of the living.”
  6. Listen to my cry,
    for I am in desperate need;
    rescue me from those who pursue me,
    for they are too strong for me.
  7. Set me free from my prison,
    that I may praise your name.
    Then the righteous will gather about me
    because of your goodness to me.
