1 I will call to the Lord for help. I will pray to the Lord. 2 I will tell the Lord about my problems. I will tell the Lord about my troubles. 3 My enemies have set a trap for me. I am ready to give up. But the Lord knows what is happening to me. 4 I look around, and I don’t see any of my friends. I have no place to run. No person is trying to save me. 5 So I cry to the Lord for help. Lord, you are my place of safety. Lord, you can let me continue to live. 6 Lord, listen to my prayer. I need you very much. Save me from the people who chase me. Those people are too strong for me. 7 Help me escape this trap so I can praise your name. And good people will celebrate with me because you took care of me.
