1 I cry loudly to Jehovah. Loudly, I plead with Jehovah for mercy.
2 I pour out my complaints in his presence and tell him my troubles.
3 When I begin to lose hope, you already know what I am experiencing. My enemies have hidden a trap for me on the path where I walk.
4 Look to my right and see that no one notices me. Escape is impossible for me. No one cares about me.
5 I call out to you, O Jehovah. I say: »You are my refuge, my own inheritance in this world of the living.«
6 Pay attention to my cry for help! I am very weak. Rescue me from those who pursue me because they are too strong for me.
7 Release me from prison so that I may praise your name. Righteous people will surround me because you are good to me.
