David sheweth that in his trouble all his comfort was in prayer unto God.
Psalms 142:1 Of understanding for David, A prayer when he was in the cave. [1 Samuel 24] I cried to the Lord with my voice: with my voice I made supplication to the Lord. Psalms 142:2 In his sight I pour out my prayer, and before him I declare my trouble: Psalms 142:3 When my spirit failed me, then thou knewest my paths. In this way wherein I walked, they have hidden a snare for me. Psalms 142:4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, and there was no one that would know me. Flight hath failed me: and there is no one that hath regard to my soul. Psalms 142:5 I cried to thee, O Lord: I said: Thou art my hope, my portion in the land of the living. Psalms 142:6 Attend to my supplication: for I am brought very low. Deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I. Psalms 142:7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the just wait for me, until thou reward me.
