Psalm 142

142
You Are My Refuge
A Maskil#142:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term of David, when he was in #Ps. 57, titlethe cave. A Prayer.
1With my voice I #Ps. 3:4 cry out to the Lord;
with my voice I #Ps. 30:8plead for mercy to the Lord.
2I #[Isa. 26:16]; See Ps. 102, titlepour out my complaint before him;
I tell my trouble before him.
3When my spirit #See Ps. 77:3 faints within me,
you know my way!
In the path where I walk
they have #Ps. 140:5hidden a trap for me.
4 # Ps. 69:20 Look to the #Ps. 16:8 right and see:
# [Ps. 31:11] there is none who takes notice of me;
# Job 11:20; Jer. 25:35 no refuge remains to me;
no one cares for my soul.
5I cry to you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my #See Ps. 14:6 refuge,
my #Ps. 16:5 portion in #Ps. 27:13the land of the living.”
6 # Ps. 17:1 Attend to my cry,
for #Ps. 79:8 I am brought very low!
Deliver me from my persecutors,
# Ps. 18:17 for they are too strong for me!
7 # Isa. 42:7; [Ps. 143:11] Bring me out of prison,
that I may give thanks to your name!
The righteous will surround me,
for you will #Ps. 13:6deal bountifully with me.
