Psalm 142 - A Psalm of encouragement

A maskil of David. When he was in the cave. A prayer.

I cry aloud to the LORD; 
I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.
I pour out my complaint before him; 
before him I tell my trouble.

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.

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

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

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