Psalms 142
New Living Translation

A psalm of David, regarding his experience in the cave. A prayer.

142I cry out to the Lord; I plead for the Lord’s mercy.

2I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles.

3When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn. Wherever I go, my enemies have set traps for me.

4I 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.

5Then I pray to you, O Lord. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.

6Hear my cry, for I am very low. Rescue me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me.

7Bring me out of prison so I can thank you. The godly will crowd around me, for you are good to me.”



[1] Psalms 142:1Hebrew maskil. This may be a literary or musical term
