Psalm 142

A contemplation by David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer. 1I cry with my voice to TheIAM. With my voice, I ask TheIAM for mercy. 2I pour out my complaint before him. I tell him my troubles. 3When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, you knew my path. In the way in which I walk, they have hidden a snare for me. 4Look on my right, and see; for there is no one who is concerned for me. Refuge has fled from me. No one cares for my soul. 5I cried to you, TheIAM. I said, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living." 6Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need. deliver me from my persecutors, For they are stronger than me. 7Bring my soul out of prison, that I may give thanks to your name. The righteous will surround me, for you will be good to me.
