A Prayer for Help in Trouble
Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave. 1.1--0.1 ; 0.22 ; 0.22 ; 24.3

1  I cried unto the LORD with my voice;
with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication.
2  I poured out my complaint before him;
I showed before him my trouble.
3  When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
then thou knewest my path.
In the way wherein I walked
have they privily laid a snare for me.
4  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.
5  I cried unto thee, O LORD:
I said, Thou art my refuge
and my portion in the land of the living.
6  Attend unto my cry;
for I am brought very low:
deliver me from my persecutors;
for they are stronger than I.
7  Bring my soul out of prison,
that I may praise thy name:
the righteous shall compass me about;
for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
