1 My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? Why are You so far from saving me, From the words of my groaning?
2 O my God, I call out in the day, but You do not answer; And in the night, but there is no rest for me.
3 But You are holy, You who sit enthroned Upon the praises of Israel.
4 In You our fathers trusted; They trusted and You rescued them.
5 To You they cried out and were delivered; In You they trusted and were not put to shame.
6 But I am a worm and not a man, A reproach of men and one despised by the people.
7 All who see me deride me; They sneer at me; they shake their heads, saying,
8 He committed himself to Jehovah; let Him rescue him; Let Him deliver him since He takes pleasure in him.
9 But You are the One who drew me forth from the womb, Who made me trust while at my mother's breasts.
10 I was cast upon You from birth; From my mother's womb You have been my God.
11 Do not be far from me, For trouble is near, For there is none to help me.
12 Many bulls surround me; The mighty bulls of Bashan encompass me.
13 They open their mouth at me, Like a ravening and 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 within me.
15 My strength is dried up like a shard, And my tongue is stuck to my jaws; You have put me in the dust of death.
16 For dogs surround me; A company of evildoers encloses me; They pierce my hands and feet.
17 I count all my bones; They look, they stare at me.
18 They divide my garments to themselves, And for my clothing they cast lots.
19 But You, O Jehovah, be not far off; O my help, hasten to aid me.
20 Deliver my soul from the sword, My precious life from the power of the dog;
21 Save me from the mouth of the lion; Indeed while I am in the horns of wild oxen, answer me.
22 I will declare Your name to my brothers; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
23 You who fear Jehovah, praise Him! All you seed of Jacob, glorify Him! And stand in awe of Him, all you seed of Israel!
24 For He has not despised nor detested The affliction of him who is afflicted; And He has not hidden His face from him; But when he cried out to Him, He heard.
25 From You comes my praise in the great assembly; My vows will I pay before those who fear Him.
26 The lowly will eat and be satisfied; Those who seek after Jehovah will praise Him - May your hearts live forever!
27 All the ends of the earth Will remember and return to Jehovah, And all families of the nations Will worship before You;
28 For the kingdom is Jehovah's, And He rules among the nations.
29 All the flourishing of the earth Will eat and worship. All who go down into the dust will bow down before Him, Even he who does not keep his soul alive.
30 A seed will serve Him; That which concerns the Lord will be told to a coming generation.
31 They will come and declare His righteousness To a people yet to be born, that He has done this.
