My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?2
O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.3
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.4
Our fatherstrusted in thee: they trusted , and thou didst deliver them.
They cried unto thee, and were delivered : they trusted in thee, and were not confounded .
But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.7
All they that see me laugh me to scorn : they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
He trusteda on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother'sbreasts.10
I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother'sbelly.11
Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help .
12Manybulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round .
They gapedb upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaringlion.14
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint : my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.15
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tonguecleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.16
For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.17
I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
They part my garments among them, and castlots upon my vesture.19
But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength,haste thee to help me.
20Deliver my soul from the sword; my darlingc from the power of the dog.21Save me from the lion'smouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.22
I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Ye that fear the LORD,praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob,glorify him; and fear 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 .
My praise shall be of thee in the greatcongregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
The meek shall eat and be satisfied : they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.27
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worshipbefore thee.
For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations.29
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship : all they that go down to the dust shall bowbefore him: and none can 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 this.
