"Psalm 142"
di Bible or other Sacred Texts

I cried unto the Lord with my voice;
with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
I poured out my complaint before him;
I shewed before him my trouble.
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.
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.
I cried unto Thee, O Lord: I said,
Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low:
deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Thy name:
the righteous shall compass me about;
for Thou shall deal bountifully with me.
I cried unto the Lord;
unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
Attend unto my cry.
