PSALM 142[F] A Prayer in Time of Trouble 142 1A maskil of David, when he was in the cave.[G] A prayer. 2With my own voice I cry to the LORD; with my own voice I beseech the LORD. 3Before him I pour out my complaint, tell of my distress in front of him. 4When my spirit is faint within me, you know my path. As I go along this path, they have hidden a trap for me. 5I look to my right hand to see that there is no one willing to acknowledge me. My escape has perished; no one cares for me. 6I cry out to you, LORD, I say, You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living. 7Listen to my cry for help, for I am brought very low. Rescue me from my pursuers, for they are too strong for me. 8Lead my soul from prison, that I may give thanks to your name. Then the righteous shall gather around me[H] because you have been good to me.
