Psalm 142
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1AN INSTRUCTION OF DAVID. A PRAYER WHEN HE IS IN THE CAVE. My voice [is] to YHWH, I cry, "" My voice [is] to YHWH, I beg [for] grace.

2I pour forth my meditation before Him, "" I declare my distress before Him.

3When my spirit has been feeble in me, "" Then You have known my path; In the way [in] which I walk, "" They have hid a snare for me.

4Looking on the right hand—and seeing, "" And I have none recognizing; Refuge has perished from me, "" There is none inquiring for my soul.

5I have cried to you, O YHWH, "" I have said, “You [are] my refuge, "" My portion in the land of the living.”

6Attend to my loud cry, "" For I have become very low, "" Deliver me from my pursuers, "" For they have been stronger than I.

7Bring forth my soul from prison to confess Your Name, "" The righteous surround me about, "" When You confer benefits on me!
