Psalm 22
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1MY God, my God, why hast thou let me to live? and yet thou hast delayed my salvation from me, because of the words of my folly.

2O my God, I call thee in the daytime but thou answerest me not; and in the night season thou abidest not with me.

3For thou art holy, and Israel dwells under thy glory.

4Our fathers trusted in thee; they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

5They cried unto thee and were delivered; they trusted in thee and were not confounded.

6But I am a worm, and not a man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

7All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn; they shoot out with their lips, they shake their heads, saying,

8He trusted in the LORD; let the LORD deliver him; let him save him, if he be delighted in him.

9For thou art my trust since I came out of the womb, and my hope since I was upon my mother's breasts.

10I was put under thy care from the womb; thou art my God from my mother's belly.

11Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

12Many bulls have surrounded me: strong bulls of Bashan have besieged me.

13Their mouths snarl against me, as a ravening and roaring lion.

14I am poured out like water and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is melted like wax, and my bowels are wasted in the midst of me.

15My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaves to my jaws; and thou hast thrown me into the dust of death.

16For the vicious have surrounded me; the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me; they have pierced my hands and my feet.

17My bones ached with pain; they looked and stared upon me.

18They parted my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

19But, O LORD, be not thou far from me; O God, O God, abide to help me.

20Deliver my soul from the sword, my only one from the hand of the vicious.

21Save me from the lion's mouth; save my meekness from the haughty,

22That I may declare thy name to my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

23You that revere the LORD, praise him; all you the offspring of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all you descendants of Israel.

24For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the poor; neither has he turned away his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard him.

25My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation; I will fulfil my vows before them that worship him.

26The poor shall eat and be satisfied; they shall praise the LORD that seek him; their hearts shall live for ever.

27All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the kindreds of the Gentiles shall worship before thee.

28For the kingdom is the LORD'S; he is the governor over the Gentiles.

29All they that are hungry upon earth shall eat and worship before the LORD; all they that are buried shall kneel before him; my soul is alive to him.

30An offspring shall serve him; the generations thereof shall proclaim the LORD.

31They shall come and declare his righteousness to a people that shall be born, and tell that which the LORD has done.
