Chapter 22

PSA.22:1 To the Chief Musician. Set to “The Deer of the Dawn.” A Psalm of David. My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from helping Me, And from the words of My groaning?
PSA.22:2 O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear; And in the night season, andAMO.not silent.
PSA.22:3 But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel.
PSA.22:4 Our fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them.
PSA.22:5 They cried to You, and were delivered; They trusted in You, and were not ashamed.
PSA.22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised by the people.
PSA.22:7 All those who see Me ridicule Me; They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
PSA.22:8 “He trusted in the LORD, let Him rescue Him; Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!”
PSA.22:9 But You are He who took Me out of the womb; You made Me trust while on My mother’s breasts.
PSA.22:10 I was cast upon You from birth. From My mother’s womb You have been My God.
PSA.22:11 Be not far from Me, For trouble is near; For there is none to help.
PSA.22:12 Many bulls have surrounded Me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me.
PSA.22:13 They gape at Me with their mouths, Like a raging and roaring lion.
PSA.22:14 I am poured out like water, And all My bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It has melted within Me.
PSA.22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, And My tongue clings to My jaws; You have brought Me to the dust of death.
PSA.22:16 For dogs have surrounded Me; The congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced My hands and My feet;
PSA.22:17 I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me.
PSA.22:18 They divide My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.
PSA.22:19 But You, O LORD, do not be far from Me; O My Strength, hasten to help Me!
PSA.22:20 Deliver Me from the sword, My precious life from the power of the dog.
PSA.22:21 Save Me from the lion’s mouth And from the horns of the wild oxen! You have answered Me.
PSA.22:22 I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
PSA.22:23 You who fear the LORD, praise Him! All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him, And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel!
PSA.22:24 For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from Him; But when He cried to Him, He heard.
PSA.22:25 My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay My vows before those who fear Him.
PSA.22:26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied; Those who seek Him will praise the LORD. Let your heart live forever!
PSA.22:27 All the ends of the world Shall remember and turn to the LORD, And all the families of the nations Shall worship before You.
PSA.22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD’S, And He rules over the nations.
PSA.22:29 All the prosperous of the earth Shall eat and worship; All those who go down to the dust Shall bow before Him, Even he who cannot keep himself alive.
PSA.22:30 A posterity shall serve Him. It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation,
PSA.22:31 They will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born, That He has done this.
