In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them.15
They cried to you2 and were saved; in you they trusted3 and were not disappointed.46
But I am a worm5 and not a man, scorned by men6 and despised7 by the people.
All who see me mock me;8 they hurl insults,9 shaking their heads:108
"He trusts in the LORD; let the LORD rescue him.11 Let him deliver him,12 since he delights13 in him."
Yet you brought me out of the womb;14 you made me trust15 in you even at my mother's breast.
From birth16 I was cast upon you; from my mother's womb you have been my God.
Do not be far from me,17 for trouble is near18 and there is no one to help.1912
Many bulls20 surround me;21 strong bulls of Bashan22 encircle me.
Roaring lions23 tearing their prey24 open their mouths wide25 against me.
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint.26 My heart has turned to wax;27 it has melted away28 within me.
