Psalms 142

Prayer for Help in Trouble.

Possibly Contemplative, or Didactic, or Skillful Psalm
Maskil of David, when he was
1 Sam 22:1; 24:3
in the cave. A Prayer.

I c cry aloud with my voice to the  Lord;
I d make supplication with my voice to the  Lord.
I e pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare my f trouble before Him.
When g my spirit
Lit fainted
was overwhelmed within me,
You knew my path.
In the way where I walk
They have i hidden a trap for me.
Look to the right and see;
For there is j no one who regards me;
Lit Escape has perished from me
There is no l escape for me;
m No one cares for my soul.

I cried out to You, O  Lord;
I said, “You are n my refuge,
My o portion in the p land of the living.
q Give heed to my cry,
For I am r brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are too s strong for me.
t Bring my soul out of prison,
So that I may give thanks to Your name;
The righteous will surround me,
For You will u deal bountifully with me.”
