Psalm 142 (WEBP)

[1] I cry with my voice to Yahweh. With my voice, I ask Yahweh for mercy.
[2] I pour out my complaint before him. I tell him my troubles.
[3] When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, you knew my route. On the path in which I walk, they have hidden a snare for me.
[4] 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.
[5] I cried to you, Yahweh. I said, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”
[6] Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need. Deliver me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me.
[7] Bring my soul out of prison, that I may give thanks to your name. The righteous will surround me, for you will be good to me.

Psalm 142 (KJVS)

[1] «Maschil H4905 (8688) of David H1732; A Prayer H8605 when he was in the cave H4631.» I cried H2199 (8799) unto the LORD H3068 with my voice H6963; with my voice H6963 unto the LORD H3068 did I make my supplication H2603 (8691).
[2] I poured out H8210 (8799) my complaint H7879 before H6440 him; I shewed H5046 (8686) before H6440 him my trouble H6869.
[3] When my spirit H7307 was overwhelmed H5848 (8692) within me, then thou knewest H3045 (8804) my path H5410. In the way H734 wherein H2098 I walked H1980 (8762) have they privily laid H2934 (8804) a snare H6341 for me.
[4] I looked H5027 (8685) on [my] right hand H3225, and beheld H7200 (8798), but [there was] no man that would know H5234 (8688) me: refuge H4498 failed H6 (8804) me; no man cared H1875 (8802) for my soul H5315.
[5] I cried H2199 (8804) unto thee, O LORD H3068: I said H559 (8804), Thou [art] my refuge H4268 [and] my portion H2506 in the land H776 of the living H2416.
[6] Attend H7181 (8685) unto my cry H7440; for I am brought H1809 very H3966 low H1809 (8804): deliver H5337 (8685) me from my persecutors H7291 (8802); for they are stronger H553 (8804) than I.
[7] Bring H3318 (8685) my soul H5315 out of prison H4525, that I may praise H3034 (8687) thy name H8034: the righteous H6662 shall compass me about H3803 (8686); for thou shalt deal bountifully H1580 (8799) with me.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 142 (YLT)

[1] My voice is unto Jehovah, I cry, My voice is unto Jehovah, I entreat grace.
[2] I pour forth before Him my meditation, My distress before Him I declare.
[3] When my spirit hath been feeble in me, Then Thou hast known my path; In the way in which I walk, They have hid a snare for me.
[4] Looking on the right hand-and seeing, And I have none recognizing; Perished hath refuge from me, There is none inquiring for my soul.
[5] I have cried unto thee, O Jehovah, I have said, ‘Thou art my refuge, My portion in the land of the living.’
[6] Attend Thou unto my loud cry, For I have become very low, Deliver Thou me from my pursuers, For they have been stronger than I.
[7] Bring forth from prison my soul to confess Thy name, The righteous do compass me about, When Thou conferrest benefits upon me!
