Psalms 142 (asv)

Psalms 142 (asv)

Maschil of David, when he was in the cave; a Prayer.

142:1I cry with my voice unto Jehovah;

With my voice unto Jehovah do I make supplication.

142:2I pour out my complaint before him;

I show before him my trouble.

142:3When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,

Thou knewest my path.

In the way wherein I walk

Have they hidden a snare for me.

142:4Look on my right hand, and see;

For there is no man that knoweth me:

Refuge hath failed me;

No man careth for my soul.

142:5I cried unto thee, O Jehovah;

I said, Thou art my refuge,

My portion in the land of the living.

142:6Attend unto my cry;

For I am brought very low:

Deliver me from my persecutors;

For they are stronger than I.

142:7Bring my soul out of prison,

That I may give thanks unto thy name:

The righteous shall compass me about;

For thou wilt deal bountifully with me.
