Psalms 142

Psalms 142

A Prayer for Safety
A maskil of David when he was in the cave. A prayer.
1I cry out to the Lord.
I pray to the Lord for mercy.
2I pour out my problems to him.
I tell him my troubles.
3When I am afraid,
you, Lord, know the way out.
In the path where I walk,
a trap is hidden for me.
4Look around me and see.
No one cares about me.
I have no place of safety.
No one cares if I live.
5Lord, I cry out to you.
I say, “You are my protection.
You are all I want in this life.”
6Listen to my cry
because I am helpless.
Save me from those who are chasing me.
They are too strong for me.
7Free me from my prison.
Then I will praise your name.
Then the good people will surround me
because you have taken care of me.
