My voice cries out to the LORD; my voice pleads for mercy to the LORD.
I cried out to you, LORD, and I make supplication to the Lord:
Have mercy on me, God, have mercy, for in you I have placed my trust. Even in the shadow of your wings will I find my refuge until this calamity passes.
David left from there and escaped to the Cave of Adullam. His brothers and all his father's family heard about this and went down to him there.
He came to the sheepfolds beside the road. There was a cave there, and Saul went in to relieve himself. Now David and his men were sitting in the inner recesses of the cave.
Later on, Jabez called on the God of Israel, asking him, ""whether you would bless me again and again, enlarge my territory, keep your power with me, keep me from evil, and keep me from harm!" And God granted what he had requested.
Hear the sound of my supplications when I cry to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.
I cry out to God! I cry out to God and he hears me.
