Psalm 22

1  My God, my God, why have you forsaken me, 
   and are so far from my salvation,
      from the words of my distress?
2  O my God, I cry in the daytime,
      but you do not answer; 
   and by night also, but I find no rest.
3  Yet you are the Holy One, 
   enthroned upon the praises of Israel.
4  Our forebears trusted in you; 
   they trusted, and you delivered them.
5  They cried out to you and were delivered; 
   they put their trust in you and were not confounded.
6  But as for me, I am a worm and no man, 
   scorned by all and despised by the people.
7  All who see me laugh me to scorn; 
   they curl their lips and wag their heads, saying,
8  ‘He trusted in the Lord; let him deliver him; 
   let him deliver him, if he delights in him.’
9  But it is you that took me out of the womb 
   and laid me safe upon my mother’s breast.
10  On you was I cast ever since I was born; 
   you are my God even from my mother’s womb.
11  Be not far from me, for trouble is near at hand 
   and there is none to help.
12  Mighty oxen come around me; 
   fat bulls of Bashan close me in on every side.
13  They gape upon me with their mouths, 
   as it were a ramping and a roaring lion.
14  I am poured out like water;
      all my bones are out of joint; 
   my heart has become like wax
      melting in the depths of my body.
15  My mouth is dried up like a potsherd;
      my tongue cleaves to my gums; 
   you have laid me in the dust of death.
