Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave.]
I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I
make my supplication.||
(142:1-7) " I cried unto the LORD with my voice...."
I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.||
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In
the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.||
I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would
know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.||
I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in
the land of the living.||
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my
persecutors; for they are stronger than I.||
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous
shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
