Psalms 142:4-6


142:4 Look to the right and see!

No one cares about me. 1 

I have nowhere to run; 2 

no one is concerned about my life. 3 

142:5 I cry out to you, O Lord;

I say, “You are my shelter,

my security 4  in the land of the living.”

142:6 Listen to my cry for help,

for I am in serious trouble! 5 

Rescue me from those who chase me,

for they are stronger than I am.

1 tn Heb “there is no one who recognizes me.”
