1 aMy God, my God, why have You forsaken me?
2 O my God, I acry by day, but You do not answer;
And by night, but 1I have no rest.
3 Yet aYou are holy,
4 In You our fathers atrusted;
They trusted and You bdelivered them.
6 But I am a aworm and not a man,
Let Him rescue him, because He delights in him.”
9 Yet You are He who abrought me forth from the womb;
You made me trust when upon my mother’s breasts.
You have been my God from my mother’s womb.
For there is bnone to help.
12 Many abulls have surrounded me;
Strong bulls of bBashan have encircled me.
13 They aopen wide their mouth at me,
As a ravening and a roaring blion.
14 I am apoured out like water,
And all my bbones are out of joint;
My cheart is like wax;
It is melted within 1me.
15 My astrength is dried up like a potsherd,
And bmy tongue cleaves to my jaws;
16 For adogs have surrounded me;
1A band of evildoers has encompassed me;
aThey look, they stare at me;
18 They adivide my garments among them,
And for my clothing they cast lots.
19 But You, O Lord, abe not far off;
O You my help, bhasten to my assistance.
21 Save me from the alion’s mouth;
22 I will atell of Your name to my brethren;
In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
23 aYou who fear the Lord, praise Him;
24 For He has anot despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
Nor has He bhidden His face from him;
But cwhen he cried to Him for help, He heard.
25 From You comes amy praise in the great assembly;
I shall bpay my vows before those who fear Him.
Those who seek Him will bpraise the Lord.
Let your cheart live forever!
27 All the aends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord,
28 For the akingdom is the Lord’s
And He brules over the nations.
All those who bgo down to the dust will bow before Him,
It will be told of the Lord to bthe coming generation.
31 They will come and awill declare His righteousness
To a people bwho will be born, that He has performed it.
