Psalms 22

Webster(i) 1 + 2 (22:1)To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? 3 (22:2)O my God, I cry in the day-time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. 4 (22:3)But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. 5 (22:4)Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. 6 (22:5)They cried to thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 7 (22:6)But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised by the people. 8 (22:7)All they that see me deride me: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 9 (22:8)He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. 10 (22:9)But thou art he that brought me forth into life: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. 11 (22:10)I was cast upon thee from my birth: thou art my God from the time I was born. 12 (22:11)Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help. 13 (22:12)Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. 14 (22:13)They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. 15 (22:14)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. 16 (22:15)My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. 17 (22:16)For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 18 (22:17)I may number all my bones: they look and stare upon me. 19 (22:18)They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. 20 (22:19)But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 21 (22:20)Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. 22 (22:21)Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. 23 (22:22)I will declare thy name to my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 24 (22:23)Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. 25 (22:24)For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried to him, he heard. 26 (22:25)My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him. 27 (22:26)The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever. 28 (22:27)All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 29 (22:28)For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations. 30 (22:29)All they that are 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. 31 (22:30)A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. 32 (22:31)They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness to a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.
