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.
