In A Hole

Psalm 142

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

(1) I cry aloud to the LORD;
I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.

(2) I pour out before him my complaint;
before him I tell my trouble.

(3) When my spirit grows faint within me,
it is you who watch over my way.
In the path where I walk
people have hidden a snare for me.

(4) Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
no one is concerned for me.
I have no refuge;
no one cares for my life.

(5) I cry to you, LORD;
I say, “You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.”

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

(7) Set me free from my prison,
that I may praise your name.
Then the righteous will gather about me
because of your goodness to me.
