The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
Maschil of David;1
A Prayer when he was in the cave.
I shall cry unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice shall I ask the LORD for mercy.
I shall pour out my complaint before him; before him I shall tell of my trouble.
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou didst know my path. In the way in which I walked have they secretly laid a snare for me.
4I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no one that would know me; I had no refuge; no one cared for my soul.
5I cried unto thee, O LORD; I said, Thou art my hope and my portion in the land of the living.
6Attend unto my cry, for I am brought very low; deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
7Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name; the righteous shall feast with me; when thou shalt have weaned me.
