1

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

2

O my God, I cry in the day time, but you hear not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

3

But you are holy, O you that inhabit the praises of Israel.

4

Our fathers trusted in you: they trusted, and you did deliver them.

5

They cried unto you, and were delivered: they trusted in you, and were not confounded.

6

But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

7

All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

8

He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

9

But you are he that took me out of the womb: you did make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

10

I was cast upon you from the womb: you are my God from 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: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

13

They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

14

I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

15

My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaves to my jaws; and you have brought me into the dust of death.

16

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

17

I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

18

They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

19

But be not you far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste you to help me.

20

Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

21

Save me from the lion's mouth: for you have heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

22

I will declare your name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise you.

23

All of you that fear the LORD, praise him; all you the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all you the seed of Israel.

24

For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

25

My praise shall be of you in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

26

The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

27

All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the families of the nations shall worship before you.

28

For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.

29

All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

30

A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

31

They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he has done this.
