July 19, Psalms 142, You are My Refuge

1I cry aloud with my voice to the Lord;

I make supplication with my voice to the Lord.

2I pour out my complaint before Him;

I declare my trouble before Him.

3When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,

You knew my path.

In the way where I walk

They have hidden a trap for me.

4Look to the right and see;

For there is no one who regards me;

There is no escape for me;

No one cares for my soul.

5I cried out to You, O Lord;

I said, “You are my refuge,

My portion in the land of the living.

6″Give heed to my cry,

For I am brought very low;

Deliver me from my persecutors,

For they are too strong for me.

7″Bring my soul out of prison,

So that I may give thanks to Your name;

The righteous will surround me,

For You will deal bountifully with me.”
