Psalm 142

A well-written song by David, when he was in the cave; a prayer.

1To the Lord I cry out;

to the Lord I plead for mercy.

2I pour out my lament before him;

I tell him about my troubles.

3Even when my strength leaves me,

you watch my footsteps.

In the path where I walk

they have hidden a trap for me.

4Look to the right and see!

No one cares about me.

I have nowhere to run;

no one is concerned about my life.

5I cry out to you, O Lord;

I say, “You are my shelter,

my security in the land of the living.”

6Listen to my cry for help,

for I am in serious trouble!

Rescue me from those who chase me,

for they are stronger than I am.

7Free me from prison,

that I may give thanks to your name.

Because of me the godly will assemble,

for you will vindicate me.

Psalm 141
