aMy God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of bmy roaring?

O my God, I cry bbin the daytime, but thou hearest not;

And in the night season, and am not silent.

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the cpraises of Israel.

Our fathers trusted in thee:

They trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

They dcried unto thee, and were delivered:

eThey trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

But I am fa worm, and no man;

A ffreproach of men, and gdespised of the people.

hAll they that see me laugh me to scorn:

They shoot out the lip, ithey shake the head, saying,

jHe trusted on the Lord that khe would deliver him:

Let him deliver him, ||seeing he ldelighted in him.

But thou art he that mntook me out of the womb:

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.

11  Be not far from me; for trouble is near;

For there is none to help.

12  Many bulls have compassed me:

pStrong qbulls of Bashan have rbeset me round.

13  sThey gaped upon me with their mouths,

As a ravening and a roaring lion.

14  I am sspoured out like water,

And all my bones are ||out of joint:

tMy heart is ulike wax;

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.

17  I may tell all my bones:

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.

20  Deliver my soul from the sword;

My darling from the power of the edog.

21  fSave me from the lion’s mouth:

For thou hast gheard me from the horns of hthe unicorns.
