<> My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? Why art Thou so far from helping Me, and from the words of My groaning?
O My God, I cry in the daytime, but Thou hearest not; and in the night season I am not silent.
But Thou art holy, O Thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Our fathers trusted 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 by the people.
All they that see Me laugh Me to scorn; they shoot out their lip, they shake their head, saying,
"He trusted in 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's breasts.
I was cast upon Thee from the womb; Thou art My God from My mother's belly.
Be not far from Me, for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
Many bulls have compassed Me about; strong bulls of Bashan have beset Me round.
They gaped at Me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
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 body.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and My tongue cleaveth to My jaws; and Thou hast brought Me into the dust of death.
For dogs have surrounded Me; the assembly of the wicked have enclosed Me; they pierced My hands and My feet.
I can count all My bones; they look and stare upon Me.
They part My garments among them, and cast lots upon My vesture.
But be Thou not far from Me, O LORD; O My Strength, hasten Thee to help Me!
Deliver My soul from the sword, My only one from the power of the dog.
Save Me from the lion's mouth; for Thou hast heard Me from the horns of the unicorns.
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.
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 great congregation; 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.
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD, and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee.
For the kingdom is the LORD'S, and He is the governor among the nations.
All they that are fat upon the earth shall eat and worship; all they that go down to the dust shall bow before Him, for none can keep alive his own soul.
A seed shall serve Him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
They shall come and shall declare His righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that He hath done this.
