For 1dogs have surrounded me; aA band of evildoers has encompassed me; bThey 2pierced my hands and my feet.
I can countall my bones. 3They look, they stare at me;
They 4divide my garments among them, And for my clothing they castlots.
But You, O LORD, 5be not far off; O You my help, 6hasten to my assistance.
20Deliver my csoul from 7the sword, My 8only life from the dpower of the dog.
21Save me from the 9lion'smouth ; From the horns of the 10wildoxen You 11answer me.
I will 12tell of Your name to my brethren ; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
2313You who fear the LORD, praise Him; All you edescendants of Jacob, 14glorify Him, And 15stand in awe of Him, all you fdescendants of Israel.
For He has 16not despisednorabhorred the affliction of the afflicted ; Nor has He 17hidden His face from him; But 18when he cried to Him for help, He heard.
From You comes 19my praise in the greatassembly ; I shall 20pay my vowsbefore those who fear Him.
