1 aMy God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
2 O my God, I cry bbin the daytime, but thou hearest not;
And in the night season, and †am not silent.
3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the cpraises of Israel.
They trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
5 They dcried unto thee, and were delivered:
eThey trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
6 But I am fa worm, and no man;
7 hAll they that see me laugh me to scorn:
Thou ||didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.
10 I was ncast upon thee from the womb:
Thou art my God ofrom my mother’s belly.
For there is †none to help.
As a ravening and a roaring lion.
14 I am sspoured out like water,
And all my bones are ||out of joint:
It is tmelted in the midst of my bowels.
15 My strength is xdried up like a potsherd;
And ymy tongue cleaveth to my jaws;
And thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
16 For zdogs have compassed me:
The assembly of the wicked have zzinclosed me:
aThey pierced my hands and my feet.
bThey look and stare upon me.
18 cThey part my garments among them,
And cast lots upon my vesture.
19 But be not thou far dfrom me, O Lord:
O my strength, haste thee to help me.
21 fSave me from the lion’s mouth:
