Psalm 142

BBE 1 <Maschil. Of David. A prayer when he was in the hole of the rock.> The sound of my cry went up to the Lord; with my voice I made my prayer for grace to the Lord. NIV 1 I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy. BBE 2 I put all my sorrows before him; and made clear to him all my trouble. NIV 2 I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble. BBE 3 When my spirit is overcome, your eyes are on my goings; nets have been secretly placed in the way in which I go. NIV 3 When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way. In the path where I walk men have hidden a snare for me. BBE 4 Looking to my right side, I saw no man who was my friend: I had no safe place; no one had any care for my soul. NIV 4 Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life. BBE 5 I have made my cry to you, O Lord; I have said, You are my safe place, and my heritage in the land of the living. NIV 5 I cry to you, O LORD; I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living." BBE 6 Give ear to my cry, for I am made very low: take me out of the hands of my haters, for they are stronger than I. NIV 6 Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me. BBE 7 Take my soul out of prison, so that I may give praise to your name: the upright will give praise because of me; for you have given me a full reward. NIV 7 Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.
