Psalms Chapter 142 - New American Standard Bible

1. I CRY aloud with my voice to the LORD; I make supplication with my voice to the LORD.

2. I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare my trouble before Him.

3. When my spirit [1] was overwhelmed within me, You knew my path. In the way where I walk They have hidden a trap for me.

4. Look to the right and see; For there is no one who regards me; [2] There is no escape for me; No one cares for my soul.

5. I cried out to You, O LORD; I said, «You are my refuge, My portion in the land of the living.

6. « Give heed to my cry, For I am brought very low; Deliver me from my persecutors, For they are too strong for me.

7. « Bring my soul out of prison, So that I may give thanks to Your name; The righteous will surround me, For You will deal bountifully with me.»
