Psalm 142

Prayer for Help in Trouble.

[a]Maskil of David, when he was [b]in the cave. A Prayer.

1I cry aloud with my voice to the Lord;
I make supplication with my voice to the Lord.
I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare my trouble before Him.
When my spirit [c]was overwhelmed within me,
You knew my path.
In the way where I walk
They have hidden a trap for me.
Look to the right and see;
For there is no one who regards me;
[d]There is no escape for me;
No one cares for my soul.

I cried out to You, O Lord;
I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
“Give heed to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are too strong for me.
“Bring my soul out of prison,
So that I may give thanks to Your name;
The righteous will surround me,
For You will deal bountifully with me.”

詩篇 142

苦難中的呼求

大衛在洞裡作的訓誨詩,也是禱告。

1我向耶和華呼求,
我高聲向祂求助,
我在祂面前傾訴我的苦情,
向祂述說我的患難。
耶和華啊,我心力交瘁的時候,
只有你知道我當走的路。
敵人已在我行的路上鋪下網羅。
看看我左右,無人關心我;
我走投無路,無人眷顧我。
耶和華啊,我向你呼求,
你是我的避難所,
在世上你是我的福分。
求你垂聽我的呼求,
因為我身陷絕境。
求你救我脫離迫害我的人,
因為他們太強大了。
求你救我脫離牢籠,
好讓我讚美你。
因為你恩待我,
義人必聚集在我周圍。
