Psalm 142

CJB 1 A maskil of David, when he was in the cave. A prayer: With my voice I cry to ADONAI, with my voice I plead to ADONAI for mercy. NIV 1 I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy. CJB 2 Before him I pour out my complaint, before him I tell my trouble. NIV 2 I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble. CJB 3 When my spirit faints within me, you watch over my path. By the road that I am walking they have hidden a snare for me. 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. CJB 4 Look to my right, and see that no one recognizes me. I have no way of escape; nobody cares for me. NIV 4 Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life. CJB 5 I cried out to you, ADONAI; I said, "You are my refuge, my portion 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." CJB 6 Listen to my cry, for I have been brought very low. Rescue me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me. 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. CJB 7 Lead me out of prison, so that I can give thanks to your name; in me the righteous will be crowning themselves, because you will have treated me generously. 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.
