142 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[A Maskil of David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer.] מַשְׂכִּיל לְדָוִד בִּהְיֹותֹו בַמְּעָרָה תְפִלָּה׃ I Call to the Lord for Help. Psalm 142(v141)
I cry with my voice to the LORD,
with my voice I make supplication to the LORD,
קֹולִי אֶל־יְהוָה אֶזְעָק קֹולִי אֶל־יְהוָה אֶתְחַןָּן׃  
I pour out my complaint before him,
I tell my trouble before him.
אֶשְׁפֹּךְ לְפָנָיו שִׂיחִי צָרָתִי לְפָנָיו אַגִּיד׃  
When my spirit is faint, thou knowest my way!

In the path where I walk they have hidden a trap for me.

בְּהִתְעַטֵּף עָלַי רוּחִי וְאַתָּה יָדַעְתָּ נְתִיבָתִי

בְּאֹרַח־זוּ אֲהַלֵּךְ טָמְנוּ פַח לִי׃

 
I look to the right and watch, but there is none who takes notice of me;
no refuge remains to me, no man cares for me.
הַבֵּיט יָמִין וּרְאֵה וְאֵין־לִי מַכִּיר
אָבַד מָנֹוס מִמֶּנִּי אֵין דֹּורֵשׁ לְנַפְשִׁי׃
 
I cry to thee, O LORD;
I say, Thou art my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.
זָעַקְתִּי אֵלֶיךָ יְהוָה אָמַרְתִּי אַתָּה מַחְסִי חֶלְקִי בְּאֶרֶץ הַחַיִּים׃  
Give heed to my cry;
for I am brought very low!

Deliver me from my persecutors;
for they are too strong for me!

הַקְשִׁיבָה אֶל־רִנָּתִי כִּי־דַלֹּותִי מְאֹד

הַצִּילֵנִי מֵרֹדְפַי כִּי אָמְצוּ מִמֶּנִּי׃

 
Bring me out of prison,
that I may give thanks to thy name!
The righteous will surround me;
for thou wilt deal bountifully with me.
הֹוצִיאָה מִמַּסְגֵּר נַפְשִׁי לְהֹודֹות אֶת־שְׁמֶךָ
בִּי יַכְתִּרוּ צַדִּיקִים כִּי תִגְמֹל עָלָי׃
 
      << | Psalms: 142 | >>
