Psalms 22

David complaineth in great discouragement.

Psalms 22:1 {For the Chief Musician; set to Aijeleth hash-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 groaning? Psalms 22:2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou answerest not; And in the night season, and am not silent. Psalms 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Psalms 22:4 Our fathers trusted in thee: They trusted, and thou didst deliver them. Psalms 22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: They trusted in thee, and were not put to shame. Psalms 22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised of the people. Psalms 22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, [saying], Psalms 22:8 Commit [thyself] unto Jehovah; Let him deliver him: Let him rescue him, seeing he delighteth in him.

He prayeth in great distress.

Psalms 22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb; Thou didst make me trust [when I was] upon my mother's breasts. Psalms 22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb; Thou art my God since my mother bare me. Psalms 22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; For there is none to help. Psalms 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me; Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. Psalms 22:13 They gape upon me with their mouth, [As] a ravening and a roaring lion. Psalms 22:14 I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax; It is melted within me. Psalms 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. Psalms 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: A company of evil-doers have inclosed me; They pierced my hands and my feet. Psalms 22:17 I may count all my bones; They look and stare upon me. Psalms 22:18 They part my garments among them, And upon my vesture do they cast lots. Psalms 22:19 But be not thou far off, O Jehovah: O thou my succor, haste thee to help me. Psalms 22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword, My darling from the power of the dog. Psalms 22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth; Yea, from the horns of the wild-oxen thou hast answered me. Psalms 22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: In the midst of the assembly will I praise thee.

He praiseth God.

Psalms 22:23 Ye that fear Jehovah, praise him; All ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; And stand in awe of him, all ye the seed of Israel. Psalms 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 unto him, he heard. Psalms 22:25 Of thee cometh my praise in the great assembly: I will pay my vows before them that fear him. Psalms 22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied; They shall praise Jehovah that seek after him: Let your heart live for ever. Psalms 22:27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto Jehovah; And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. Psalms 22:28 For the kingdom is Jehovah's; And he is the ruler over the nations. Psalms 22:29 All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship: All they that go down to the dust shall bow before him, Even he that cannot keep his soul alive. Psalms 22:30 A seed shall serve him; It shall be told of the Lord unto the [next] generation. Psalms 22:31 They shall come and shall declare his righteousness Unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done it.
