Psalm of the Day – January 17, 2020 (Psalm 142)

1   With my voice I cry to the LORD; 
          with my voice I make supplication to the LORD. 
2   I pour out my complaint before him; 
          I tell my trouble before him. 
3   When my spirit is faint, 
          you know my way.

     In the path where I walk 
          they have hidden a trap for me. 
4   Look on my right hand and see — 
          there is no one who takes notice of me; 
     no refuge remains to me; 
          no one cares for me.

5   I cry to you, O LORD; 
          I say, “You are my refuge, 
          my portion in the land of the living.” 
6   Give heed to my cry, 
          for I am brought very low.

     Save me from my persecutors, 
          for they are too strong for me. 
7   Bring me out of prison, 
          so that I may give thanks to your name. 
     The righteous will surround me, 
          for you will deal bountifully with me.
