Psalm 142 World English Bible

A Prayer for Help in Trouble

142 1  I cry with my voice to Yahweh.
With my voice, I ask Yahweh for mercy. 2  I pour out my complaint before him.
I tell him my troubles. 3  When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
you knew my path.
In the way in which I walk,
they have hidden a snare for me.

4  Look on my right, and see;
for there is no one who is concerned for me.
Refuge has fled from me.
No one cares for my soul. 5  I cried to you, Yahweh.
I said, “You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.” 6  Listen to my cry,
for I am in desperate need.
deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are stronger than me. 7  Bring my soul out of prison,
that I may give thanks to your name.
The righteous will surround me,
for you will be good to me.
