Psalm 142 The Passion Translation (TPT)

My Only Hope

142 King David’s poetic song of instruction
A prayer when he was confined in a cave
God, I’m crying out to you!
I lift up my voice boldly to beg for your mercy.
I spill out my heart to you and tell you all my troubles.
For when I was desperate, overwhelmed, and about to give up,
you were the only one there to help.
You gave me a way of escape
from the hidden traps of my enemies.
I look to my left and right to see if there is anyone who will help,
but there’s no one who takes notice of me.
I have no hope of escape, and no one cares whether I live or die.
So I cried out to you, Lord, my only hiding place.
You’re all I have, my only hope in this life,
my last chance for help.
Please listen to my heart’s cry,
for I am low and in desperate need of you!
Rescue me from all those who persecute me,
for I am no match for them.
Bring me out of this dungeon so I can declare your praise!
And all your godly lovers will celebrate
all the wonderful things you’ve done for me!
