He complaineth of his griefs.

for deliverance,

Psalms 143:9 Deliver me, O Jehovah, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.

Psalms 143:10 Teach me to do thy will; For thou art my God: Thy Spirit is good; Lead me in the land of uprightness. Psalms 143:11 Quicken me, O Jehovah, for thy name's sake: In thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
