1aI cry out loud for help from the LORD. I beg out loud for mercy from the LORD.
I pour out my concerns before God; I announce my distress to him.
When my spirit is weak inside me, you still know my way. But they've hidden a trap for me in the path I'm taking.
Look right beside me: See? No one pays attention to me. There's no escape for me. No one cares about my life.
I cry to you, LORD, for help. "You are my refuge," I say. "You are all I have in the land of the living."
Pay close attention to my shouting, because I've been brought down so low! Deliver me from my oppressors because they're stronger than me.
