Instruction by David, when he was in the cave praying.
I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make supplication.
I will pour out my supplication before Him; I will shew before Him my trouble.
When my spirit was fainting within me, then Thou knewest my paths.
In this 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 knew me.
Flight failed me, and there is none that watcheth for my soul.
I cried unto Thee, O Lord; I said, Thou art my hope, my portion in the land of the living.
Attend unto my supplication, 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 just shall await me, until Thou shalt reward me.
