1 Of understanding for David. A prayer when he was in the cave. [1 Kings 24]

2 I cried to the Lord with my voice: with my voice I made supplication to the Lord.

3 In his sight I pour out my prayer, and before him I declare my trouble:

4 When my spirit failed me, then thou newest my paths. In this way wherein I walked, they have hidden a snare for me.

5 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.

6 I cried to thee, O Lord: I said: Thou art my hope, my portion in the land of the living.

7 Attend to my supplication: for I am brought very low. Deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

8 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the just wait for me, until thou reward me.
