A Prayer in Time of Trouble

1A maskil of David, when he was in the cave.* A prayer.

2With full voice I cry to the LORD; with full voice I beseech the LORD. 3Before God I pour out my complaint, lay bare my distress. 4My spirit is faint within me, r Ps 143, 4 . but you know my path. s Ps 139, 24 . Along the way I walk they have hidden a trap for me. t Ps 141, 9 . 5I look to my right hand, u Pss 16, 8; 73, 23; 121, 5 . but no friend is there. There is no escape for me; no one cares for me. 6I cry out to you, LORD, I say, You are my refuge, v Ps 91, 2. 91, 9 . my portion in the land of the living. w Pss 16, 5; 27, 13; 116, 9; Is 38, 11 . 7Listen to my cry for help, for I am brought very low. x Ps 79, 8 . Rescue me from my pursuers, for they are too strong for me. 8Lead me out of my prison, that I may give thanks to your name. Then the just shall gather around me* because you have been good to me.
