Psalm 22:1-21 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

For the director of music. To [the tune of] "The Doe of the Morning." A psalm of David.

1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?1 Why are you so far2 from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning?3 2 O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,4 by night,5 and am not silent. 3 Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;6 you are the praise7 of Israel.a 4 In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them.8 5 They cried to you9 and were saved; in you they trusted10 and were not disappointed.11 6 But I am a worm12 and not a man, scorned by men13 and despised14 by the people. 7 All who see me mock me;15 they hurl insults,16 shaking their heads:17 8 "He trusts in the LORD; let the LORD rescue him.18 Let him deliver him,19 since he delights20 in him." 9 Yet you brought me out of the womb;21 you made me trust22 in you even at my mother's breast. 10 From birth23 I was cast upon you; from my mother's womb you have been my God. 11 Do not be far from me,24 for trouble is near25 and there is no one to help.26 12 Many bulls27 surround me;28 strong bulls of Bashan29 encircle me. 13 Roaring lions30 tearing their prey31 open their mouths wide32 against me. 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint.33 My heart has turned to wax;34 it has melted away35 within me. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd,36 and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;37 you lay meb in the dust38 of death. 16 Dogs39 have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have piercedc40 my hands and my feet. 17 I can count all my bones; people stare41 and gloat over me.42 18 They divide my garments among them and cast lots43 for my clothing.44 19 But you, O LORD, be not far off;45 O my Strength,46 come quickly47 to help me.48 20 Deliver my life from the sword,49 my precious life50 from the power of the dogs.51 21 Rescue me from the mouth of the lions;52 saved me from the horns of the wild oxen.53
