Chapter 22

1

 

 To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [why art thou so] far from helping me, [and from] the words of my roaring? 

 

 


2

 

 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. 

 

 


3

 

 But thou [art] holy, [O thou] that inhabitest the praises of Israel. 

 

 


4

 

 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. 

 

 


5

 

 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 

 

 


6

 

 But I [am] a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. 

 

 


7

 

 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, [saying], 

 

 


8

 

 He trusted on the LORD [that] he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. 

 

 


9

 

 But thou [art] he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope [when I was] upon my mother's breasts. 

 

 


10

 

 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou [art] my God from my mother's belly. 

 

 


11

 

 Be not far from me; for trouble [is] near; for [there is] none to help. 

 

 


12

 

 Many bulls have compassed me: strong [bulls] of Bashan have beset me round. 

 

 


13

 

 They gaped upon me [with] their mouths, [as] a ravening and a roaring lion. 

 

 


14

 

 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. 

 

 


15

 

 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. 

 

 


16

 

 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 

 

 


17

 

 I may tell all my bones: they look [and] stare upon me. 

 

 


18

 

 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. 

 

 


19

 

 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 

 

 


20

 

 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. 

 

 


21

 

 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. 

 

 


22

 

 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 

 

 


23

 

 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. 

 

 


24

 

 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard. 

 

 


25

 

 My praise [shall be] of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him. 

 

 


26

 

 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever. 

 

 


27

 

 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 

 

 


28

 

 For the kingdom [is] the LORD'S: and he [is] the governor among the nations. 

 

 


29

 

 All [they that be] fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul. 

 

 


30

 

 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. 

 

 


31

 

 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done [this].
