Psalm 142

Psalm 142[a]

A maskil[b] of David. When he was in the cave. A prayer.

I cry aloud to the Lord;
    I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.
I pour out before him my complaint;
    before him I tell my trouble.

When my spirit grows faint within me,
    it is you who watch over my way.
In the path where I walk
    people have hidden a snare for me.
Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
    no one is concerned for me.
I have no refuge;
    no one cares for my life.

I cry to you, Lord;
    I say, “You are my refuge,
    my portion in the land of the living.”

Listen to my cry,
    for I am in desperate need;
rescue me from those who pursue me,
    for they are too strong for me.
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.

诗篇 142

苦难中的呼求

大卫在洞里作的训诲诗,也是祷告。

1我向耶和华呼求,
我高声向祂求助,
我在祂面前倾诉我的苦情,
向祂述说我的患难。
耶和华啊,我心力交瘁的时候,
只有你知道我当走的路。
敌人已在我行的路上铺下网罗。
看看我左右,无人关心我;
我走投无路,无人眷顾我。
耶和华啊,我向你呼求,
你是我的避难所,
在世上你是我的福分。
求你垂听我的呼求,
因为我身陷绝境。
求你救我脱离迫害我的人,
因为他们太强大了。
求你救我脱离牢笼,
好让我赞美你。
因为你恩待我,
义人必聚集在我周围。
