Psalms 22

David complaineth in great discouragement.

Psalms 22:1 {To the chiefe musition of the mornyng hinde, a psalme of Dauid.} My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [why] art thou so farre from my health, and from the wordes of my complaynt? Psalms 22:2 O my God I crye all the day tyme, and in the night season, and I ceasse not: but thou hearest not. Psalms 22:3 And yet thou most holy: sittest to receaue the prayers of Israel. Psalms 22:4 Our fathers hoped in thee: they trusted in thee, & thou didst deliuer them. Psalms 22:5 They called vpon thee, and they were helped: they did put their trust in thee, and they were not confounded. Psalms 22:6 But as for me I am a worme and no man: a very scorne of men, and an outcast of the people. Psalms 22:7 All they that see me, laugh me to scorne: they do make a mowe, and nod their head [at me.] Psalms 22:8 [Saying] he referreth [all] to God, [loking that God] wyll deliuer him [and] rescue him: for he delighteth only in him.

He prayeth in great distress.

Psalms 22:9 But thou art he that tokest me out of my mothers wombe: thou causedst me to trust in thee, suckyng my mothers breastes. Psalms 22:10 I haue ben left vnto thee euer since I was borne: thou art my God euen from my mothers wombe. Psalms 22:11 O go not far fro me, for trouble is harde at hande: and there is none to helpe me. Psalms 22:12 Many oxen are come about me: fat [bulles] of Bashan close me in on euery syde. Psalms 22:13 They gape vpon me with their mouthes: as it were a rampyng and a roryng lion. Psalms 22:14 I am as [it were] into water resolued, and all my bones are out of ioynt: my heart also is like waxe melted in the middest of my bowels. Psalms 22:15 My strength is dried vp like a potsheard, & my tongue cleaueth to my gummes: and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. Psalms 22:16 For dogges are come about me, the assemble of the wicked lay siege agaynst me: they haue pearced my handes and my feete, Psalms 22:17 I may tell all my bones. They stande staring & gasing vpon me: Psalms 22:18 they part my garmentes among them, and they cast lottes vpon my vesture. Psalms 22:19 But be not thou farre from me O God: thou art my strength, make haste to helpe me. Psalms 22:20 Delyuer my soule from the sworde: and my dearlyng from the dogges pawes. Psalms 22:21 Saue me from the Lions mouth: delyuer me from the hornes of the Unicornes. Psalms 22:22 I wyll declare thy name vnto my brethren: I wyll prayse thee in the middest of the congregation.

He praiseth God.

Psalms 22:23 [Saying] prayse ye God ye that feare hym: glorifie hym all ye of the seede of Iacob, and stande in awe of hym all ye of the seede of Israel. Psalms 22:24 For he hath not dispised nor abhorred the affliction of the poore: he hath not hyd his face from hym, but he hearde hym when he cryed vnto hym. Psalms 22:25 My prayse shalbe of thee in the great congregation: I wyll perfourme my vowes in the syght of them that feare hym. Psalms 22:26 The poore shall eate, and be satisfied: they that seeke after God shall prayse hym, your heart shall lyue for euer. Psalms 22:27 All the endes of the worlde shall remember them selues and be turned vnto God: and all the kinredes of the nations shall worshyp before thy face. Psalms 22:28 For the kingdome is Gods: and he is the gouernour ouer the nations. Psalms 22:29 All such as be fat vpon the earth shall eate and worshyp: all they that go downe [in] to the dust shall knele before hym, although he preserued not his owne lyfe. Psalms 22:30 The posteritie shall serue hym: they shalbe counted vnto the Lorde for a generation. Psalms 22:31 They wyll come and declare his righteousnesse vnto a people that shalbe borne: for he hath done it.
