Psalm 22 KJV

1 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.

5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered : they trusted in thee, and were not confounded .
6 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,
8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
