A maskil of David when he was in the cave. A prayer.
142 I cry out to the Lord; I pray to the Lord for mercy. 2 I pour out my problems to him; I tell him my troubles. 3 When I am afraid, you, Lord, know the way out. In the path where I walk, a trap is hidden for me. 4 Look around me and see. No one cares about me. I have no place of safety; no one cares if I live.
5 Lord, I cry out to you. I say, “You are my protection. You are all I want in this life.” 6 Listen to my cry, because I am helpless. Save me from those who are chasing me, because they are too strong for me. 7 Free me from my prison, and then I will praise your name. Then good people will surround me, because you have taken care of me.
