22:2 O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent.
22:3 Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel.
22:4 In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them.
22:5 They cried to you and were saved; in you they trusted and were not disappointed.
22:6 But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by men and despised by the people.
22:7 All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads:
22:8 "He trusts in the Lord ; let the Lord rescue him. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him."
22:9 Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother's breast.
22:10 From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother's womb you have been my God.
22:11 Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help.
22:12 Many bulls surround me; strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.
22:13 Roaring lions tearing their prey open their mouths wide against me.
22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted away within me.
22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death.
22:16 Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17 I can count all my bones; people stare and gloat over me.
22:18 They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.
22:19 But you, O Lord , be not far off; O my Strength, come quickly to help me.
22:20 Deliver my life from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dogs.
22:21 Rescue me from the mouth of the lions; save me from the horns of the wild oxen.
