Psalm 22

To the Chief Musician, on the deer of the dawn. A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why have You forsaken me, and [are] far from my deliverance, [and from] the words of my groaning?

O my God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not answer; and in the night, and am not silent.

But You [are] holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.

Our fathers trusted in You; they trusted, and You delivered them.

They cried to You, and were delivered; they trusted in You, and were not ashamed.

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

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

He trusted on the LORD; let Him deliver him; let Him rescue him, since He delights in him!

For You [are He] who took me out of the womb, causing me to trust [when I was] on my mother's breasts.

I was cast on You from the womb; You [are] my God from my mother's belly.

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

Many bulls have circled around me; strong [bulls] of Bashan have surrounded me.

They opened wide their mouths on me, [like] a ripping and a roaring lion.

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

My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue clings to my jaws;

and You have brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have circled around me; the band of spoilers have hemmed me in, piercers of my hands and my feet.

I can count all my bones; they look [and] stare at me.

They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.

But You, O LORD, be not far from me; O my strength, hurry to help me!

Deliver my soul from the sword, my only one from the dog's hand.

Save me from the lion's mouth; from the wild oxen's horns. You have answered me.

I will declare Your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise You.

You who fear the LORD, praise Him; all of you, the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and fear Him all the seed of Israel.

For He has not despised nor hated the affliction of the afflicted; and He has not hidden His face from him, but when he cried to Him, He heard.

My praise [shall be] of You in the great congregation; I will pay my vows before the ones who fear Him.

The meek shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek the LORD shall praise Him; your heart shall live forever.

All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before You.

For the kingdom [is] the LORD's; and He [is] the ruler among the nations.

All the fat [ones] on the earth shall eat and worship; all those who go down to the dust shall bow before Him; and none can keep alive his own soul.

A seed shall serve Him; it shall be spoken of the LORD to the [coming] generation.

They shall come, and shall declare His righteousness to a people that shall [yet] be born, that He has done [this].
