New Living Translation
I look for someone to come and help me, but no one gives me a passing thought! No one will help me; no one cares a bit what happens to me.
King James Bible
I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.
Darby Bible Translation
Look on the right hand and see; there is no man that knoweth me: refuge hath failed me; no man careth for my soul.
World English Bible
Look on my right, and see; for there is no one who is concerned for me. Refuge has fled from me. No one cares for my soul.
Young's Literal Translation
Looking on the right hand -- and seeing, And I have none recognizing; Perished hath refuge from me, There is none inquiring for my soul.
Psalm 142:4 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
142:4 Right - hand - The place where the patron or assistant used to stand.
But the wicked will be blinded. They will have no escape. Their only hope is death."
I am scorned by all my enemies and despised by my neighbors--even my friends are afraid to come near me. When they see me on the street, they run the other way.
Their insults have broken my heart, and I am in despair. If only one person would show some pity; if only one would turn and comfort me.
You have driven my friends away by making me repulsive to them. I am in a trap with no way of escape.
You have taken away my companions and loved ones. Darkness is my closest friend.
Not one of your children is left alive to take your hand and guide you.
You will find no place to hide; there will be no way to escape.
