For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

they pierced
The textual reading is {kari,} "as a lion my hands and feet;" but several MSS., read {kroo,} and others {karoo} in the margin, which affords the reading adopted by our translators. So the LXX. [oryxan cheiras mou kai podas,] so also the Vulgate, Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic; and as all the Evangelists so quote the passage, and apply it to the crucifixion of Christ, there seems scarcely the shadow of a doubt that this is the genuine reading; especially when it is considered, that the other contains no sense at all. The whole difference lies between [vv] {wav} and [ywd,] {yood,} which might easily be mistaken for each other.
