Prayer for Help in Trouble.

Maskil of David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer.

  1 I acry aloud with my voice to the LORD;
  I bmake supplication with my voice to the LORD.
  2 I apour out my complaint before Him;
  I declare my btrouble before Him.
  3 When amy spirit Iwas overwhelmed within me,
  You knew my path.
  In the way where I walk
  They have bhidden a trap for me.
  4 Look to the right and see;
  For there is ano one who regards me;
  IThere is no bescape for me;
  cNo one cares for my soul.

David sheweth that in his trouble all his comfort was in prayer unto God.

1 ¶ [[Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave.]] 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 shewed 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.
