Psalm 142
King James 2000

A maschil of David. A prayer when he was in the cave.
A Cry to the LORD in Time of Persecution

1I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication.

2I poured out my complaint before him; I showed before him my trouble.

3When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then you knew 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 man that would acknowledge me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.

5I cried unto you, O LORD: I said, you are my refuge 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 your name: the righteous shall surround me; for you shall deal bountifully with me.

Psalm 141
