|Prayer for Help in Trouble|
|Maschil of David, when he was in the cave; a Prayer.|
| ||I CRY with my voice unto Jehovah;|
With my voice unto Jehovah do I make supplication.
| ||I pour out my complaint before him;|
I show before him my trouble.
| ||When my spirit was 1 overwhelmed within me,|
Thou knewest my path.
In the way wherein I walk
Have they hidden a snare for me.
| ||Look on my right hand, and see;|
For there is no man that knoweth me:
Refuge hath failed me;
No man careth for my soul.
| ||I cried unto thee, O Jehovah;|
I said, Thou art my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
| ||Attend unto my cry;|
For I am brought very low:
Deliver me from my persecutors;
For they are stronger than I.
| ||Bring my soul out of prison,|
That I may give thanks unto thy name:
The righteous shall compass 2 me about;
For thou wilt deal bountifully with me.
