Psalm 142

1  I cry aloud to the Lord; 
   to the Lord I make my supplication.
2  I pour out my complaint before him 
   and tell him of my trouble.
3  When my spirit faints within me, you know my path; 
   in the way wherein I walk have they laid a snare for me.
4  I look to my right hand, and find no one who knows me; 
   I have no place to flee to, and no one cares for my soul.
5  I cry out to you, O Lord, and say: 
   ‘You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.
6  ‘Listen to my cry, for I am brought very low; 
   save me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me.
7  ‘Bring my soul out of prison,
      that I may give thanks to your name; 
   when you have dealt bountifully with me,
      then shall the righteous gather around me.’
