My God! My God, why have you left me all alone? Why are you so far from saving me— so far from my anguished groans?
My God, I cry out during the day, but you don't answer; even at nighttime I don't stop.
You are the holy one, enthroned. You are Israel's praise.
Our ancestors trusted you— they trusted you and you rescued them;
they cried out to you and they were saved; they trusted you and they weren't ashamed.
But I'm just a worm, less than human; insulted by one person, despised by another.
