Psalm 142
Douay-Rheims Bible

With My Voice, I Ask the Lord for Mercy

(1 Samuel 22:1-5; Psalm 57:1-11)

1{141:1}Of understanding for David, A prayer when he was in the cave. [2] I cried to the Lord with my voice: with my voice I made supplication to the Lord.

2{141:3}In his sight I pour out my prayer, and before him I declare my trouble:

3{141:4}When my spirit failed me, then thou knewest my paths. In this way wherein I walked, they have hidden a snare for me.

4{141:5}I looked on my right hand, and beheld, and there was no one that would know me. Flight hath failed me: and there is no one that hath regard to my soul.

5{141:6}I cried to thee, O Lord: I said: Thou art my hope, my portion in the land of the living.

6{141:7}Attend to my supplication: for I am brought very low. Deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

7{141:8}Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the just wait for me, until thou reward me.
