Psalm 142

Prayer for Deliverance from Persecutors

A Maskil of David. When he was in the cave. A Prayer.

1

With my voice I cry to the Lord;

with my voice I make supplication to the Lord.

2

I pour out my complaint before him;

I tell my trouble before him.

3

When my spirit is faint,

you know my way.

 

In the path where I walk

they have hidden a trap for me.

4

Look on my right hand and see—

there is no one who takes notice of me;

no refuge remains to me;

no one cares for me.

 

5

I cry to you, O Lord;

I say, “You are my refuge,

my portion in the land of the living.”

6

Give heed to my cry,

for I am brought very low.

 

Save me from my persecutors,

for they are too strong for me.

7

Bring me out of prison,

so that I may give thanks to your name.

The righteous will surround me,

for you will deal bountifully with me.
