Psalm 142 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave.
1I cried unto the Lord with my voice;
with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
2I poured out my complaint before him;
I shewed before him my trouble.
3When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.
In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.
4I looked on my right hand, and beheld,
but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me;
no man cared for my soul.
5I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said,
Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
6Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low:
deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
7Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name:
the righteous shall compass me about;
for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
