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.’

Psalm 143

1  Hear my prayer, O Lord,
      and in your faithfulness give ear to my supplications; 
   answer me in your righteousness.
2  Enter not into judgement with your servant, 
   for in your sight shall no one living be justified.
3  For the enemy has pursued me,
      crushing my life to the ground, 
   making me sit in darkness like those long dead.
4  My spirit faints within me; 
   my heart within me is desolate.
5  I remember the time past; I muse upon all your deeds; 
   I consider the works of your hands.
6  I stretch out my hands to you; 
   my soul gasps for you like a thirsty land.
7  O Lord, make haste to answer me; my spirit fails me; 
   hide not your face from me
      lest I be like those who go down to the Pit.
8  Let me hear of your loving-kindness in the morning,
      for in you I put my trust; 
   show me the way I should walk in,
      for I lift up my soul to you.
9  Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies, 
   for I flee to you for refuge.
10  Teach me to do what pleases you, for you are my God; 
   let your kindly spirit lead me on a level path.
11  Revive me, O Lord, for your name’s sake; 
   for your righteousness’ sake, bring me out of trouble.
