Psalm 142

Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave.

1. I cried unto the Lord with my voice;

with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.

2. I poured out my complaint before him;

I shewed before him my trouble.

3. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.

In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

4. I looked on my right hand, and beheld,

but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me;

no man cared for my soul.

5. I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said,

Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.

6. Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low:

deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

7. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name:

the righteous shall compass me about;

for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
