Psalms Chapter 142 - New International Version

1. Psalm 142 A [1] of David. When he was in the cave. A prayer.

1. I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.

2. I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble.

3. When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way. In the path where I walk men have hidden a snare for me.

4. Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.

5. I cry to you, O LORD; I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living."

6. Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.

7. Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.
