Psalm 142

You Are My Refuge

1 I CRY out to the LORD with my voice;
With my voice to the LORD I make my supplication.
2 I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare before Him my trouble.

3 When my spirit 1 was a overwhelmed within me,
Then You knew my path.
In the way in which I walk
They have secretly b set a snare for me.
4 Look on my right hand and see,
For there is no one who acknowledges me;
Refuge has failed me;
No one cares for my soul.

5 I cried out to You, O LORD:
I said, "You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
6 2 Attend to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are stronger than I.
7 Bring my soul out of prison,
That I may c praise Your name;
The righteous shall surround me,
For You shall deal bountifully with me."
