Many bulls1 surround me;2 strong bulls of Bashan3 encircle me.
Roaring lions4 tearing their prey5 open their mouths wide6 against me.
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint.7 My heart has turned to wax;8 it has melted away9 within me.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd,10 and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;11 you lay mea in the dust12 of death.
Dogs13 have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have piercedb14 my hands and my feet.
