15 My strength is dried up like a piece of broken pottery. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you've set me down in the dirt of death. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death.
16 Dogs surround me; a pack of evil people circle me like a lion— oh, my poor hands and feet! 16 Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet.

24 Because he didn't despise or detest the suffering of the one who suffered— he didn't hide his face from me.
