Psalms 142


Rescue Me

Of contemplation to David; in his being in the cave praying.

[2with my voice 3to 4the  lord 1I cried out]; [2with my voice 3to 4the  lord 1I beseeched]. I shall pour out [2before 3him 1my supplication]; [2my affliction 3before 4him 1I shall report]. In [2failing 3from 4me 1my spirit], then you knew my paths; in this very way that I went, they hid a snare for me. I contemplated to the right, and I looked; for there was not one recognizing me. [2perished 1Flight] from me, and there is not one inquiring after my soul. I cried out to you, O  lord. I said, You are my hope, [2my portion 1you are] in the land of the living. Take heed to my supplication! for I was humbled exceedingly. Rescue me from the ones pursuing me! for they were strengthened above me. Lead [2out 3of 4prison 1my soul]! to make acknowledgment to your name. [2shall wait for me 1The just], until of which time you should recompense me.
