Psalms 142

A psalm [1]  of David, regarding his experience in the cave. A prayer.
 1  I cry out to the LORD;
  I plead for the LORD's mercy.
 2  I pour out my complaints before him
  and tell him all my troubles.
 3  When I am overwhelmed,
  you alone know the way I should turn.
Wherever I go,
  my enemies have set traps for me.
 4  I look for someone to come and help me,
  but no one gives me a passing thought!
No one will help me;
  no one cares a bit what happens to me.
 5  Then I pray to you, O LORD. I say, "You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life."  6  Hear my cry,
  for I am very low.
Rescue me from my persecutors,
  for they are too strong for me.
 7  Bring me out of prison
  so I can thank you.
The godly will crowd around me,
  for you are good to me."
