Psalms 22:16 In-Context

14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted within me.
15 My mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death.

17 All my bones are on display; people stare and gloat over me.
18 They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.
