Masʹkil.* Of David, when he happened to be in the cave.+ A prayer. 142 With my voice, to Jehovah I proceeded to call for aid;+ With my voice, to Jehovah I began to cry for favor.+ 2 Before him I kept pouring out my concern;+ Before him I continued to tell about my own distress,+ 3 When my spirit+ fainted away within me. Then you yourself knew my roadway.+ In the path in which I walk+ They have hidden a trap for me.+ 4 Look to the right hand and see That there is no one giving any recognition to me.+ My place for flight has perished from me;+ There is no one inquiring for my soul.+ 5 I called to you, O Jehovah, for aid.+ I said: “You are my refuge,+ My share+ in the land of the living ones.”+ 6 Do pay attention to my entreating cry,+ For I have become very much impoverished.+ Deliver me from my persecutors,+ For they are stronger than I am.+ 7 Do bring my soul out of the very dungeon+ To laud your name.+ Around me let the righteous ones gather,+ Because you deal appropriately with me.+
