Chapter 22

1

 

  {To the chief Musician. Upon Aijeleth-Shahar. A Psalm of David.} My łGod, my łGod, why hast thou forsaken me? [why art thou] far from my salvation, from the words of my groaning?  

 

 


2

 

  My God, I cry by day, and thou answerest not; and by night, and there is no rest for me:  

 

 


3

 

  And thou art holy, thou that dwellest amid the praises of Israel.  

 

 


4

 

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

 

 


5

 

  They cried unto thee, and were delivered; they confided in thee, and were not confounded.  

 

 


6

 

  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and the 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

 

  Commit it to Jehovah -- let him rescue him; let him deliver him, because he delighteth in him!  

 

 


9

 

  But thou art he that took me out of the womb; thou didst make me trust, upon my mother's breasts.  

 

 


10

 

  I was cast upon thee from the womb; thou art my łGod 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 encompassed me; Bashan's strong ones have beset me round.  

 

 


13

 

  They gape upon me with their mouth, [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 become 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 palate; and thou hast laid me in the dust of death.  

 

 


16

 

  For dogs have encompassed me; an assembly of evil-doers have surrounded me: they pierced my hands and my feet.  

 

 


17

 

  I may count all my bones. They look, they stare upon me;  

 

 


18

 

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

 

 


19

 

  But thou, Jehovah, be not far [from me]; O my strength, haste thee to help me.  

 

 


20

 

  Deliver my soul from the sword; my only one from the power of the dog;  

 

 


21

 

  Save me from the lion's mouth. Yea, from the horns of the buffaloes hast thou answered me.  

 

 


22

 

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

 

 


23

 

  Ye that fear Jehovah, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and revere 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 is from 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 Jehovah that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.  

 

 


27

 

  All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto Jehovah, and all the families of the nations shall worship before thee:  

 

 


28

 

  For the kingdom is Jehovah's, and he ruleth among the nations.  

 

 


29

 

  All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship; all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him, and he that cannot 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 [it].
