Psalm 22 (WEBP)

[1] My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning?
[2] My God, I cry in the daytime, but you don’t answer; in the night season, and am not silent.
[3] But you are holy, you who inhabit the praises of Israel.
[4] Our fathers trusted in you. They trusted, and you delivered them.
[5] They cried to you, and were delivered. They trusted in you, and were not disappointed.
[6] But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised by the people.
[7] All those who see me mock me. They insult me with their lips. They shake their heads, saying,
[8] “He trusts in Yahweh. Let him deliver him. Let him rescue him, since he delights in him.”
[9] But you brought me out of the womb. You made me trust while at my mother’s breasts.
[10] I was thrown on you from my mother’s womb. You are my God since my mother bore me.
[11] Don’t be far from me, for trouble is near. For there is no one to help.
[12] Many bulls have surrounded me. Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me.
[13] They open their mouths wide against me, lions tearing prey and roaring.
[14] I am poured out like water. 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 potsherd. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You have brought me into the dust of death.
[16] For dogs have surrounded me. A company of evildoers have enclosed me. They have pierced my hands and feet.
[17] I can count all of my bones. They look and stare at me.
[18] They divide my garments among them. They cast lots for my clothing.
[19] But don’t be far off, Yahweh. You are my help. Hurry to help me!
[20] Deliver my soul from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dog.
[21] Save me from the lion’s mouth! Yes, you have rescued me from the horns of the wild oxen.
[22] I will declare your name to my brothers. Among the assembly, I will praise you.
[23] You who fear Yahweh, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, glorify him! Stand in awe of him, all you descendants of Israel!
[24] For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, neither has he hidden his face from him; but when he cried to him, he heard.
[25] My praise of you comes in the great assembly. I will pay my vows before those who fear him.
[26] The humble shall eat and be satisfied. They shall praise Yahweh who seek after him. Let your hearts live forever.
[27] All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to Yahweh. All the relatives of the nations shall worship before you.
[28] For the kingdom is Yahweh’s. He is the ruler over the nations.
[29] All the rich ones of the earth shall eat and worship. All those who go down to the dust shall bow before him, even he who can’t keep his soul alive.
[30] Posterity shall serve him. Future generations shall be told about the Lord.
[31] They shall come and shall declare his righteousness to a people that shall be born, for he has done it.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 22 (YLT)

[1] My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation, The words of my roaring?
[2] My God, I call by day, and Thou answerest not, And by night, and there is no silence to me.
[3] And Thou art holy, Sitting-the Praise of Israel.
[4] In Thee did our fathers trust-they trusted, And Thou dost deliver them.
[5] Unto Thee they cried, and were delivered, In Thee they trusted, and were not ashamed.
[6] And I am a worm, and no man, A reproach of man, and despised of the people.
[7] All beholding me do mock at me, They make free with the lip-shake the head,
[8] ‘Roll unto Jehovah, He doth deliver him, He doth deliver him, for he delighted in him.’
[9] For thou art He bringing me forth from the womb, Causing me to trust, On the breasts of my mother.
[10] On Thee I have been cast from the womb, From the belly of my mother Thou art my God.
[11] Be not far from me, For adversity is near, for there is no helper.
[12] Many bulls have surrounded me, Mighty ones of Bashan have compassed me,
[13] They have opened against me their mouth, A lion tearing and roaring.
[14] As waters I have been poured out, And separated themselves have all my bones, My heart hath been like wax, It is melted in the midst of my bowels.
[15] Dried up as an earthen vessel is my power, And my tongue is cleaving to my jaws.
[16] And to the dust of death thou appointest me, For surrounded me have dogs, A company of evil doers have compassed me, Piercing my hands and my feet.
[17] I count all my bones-they look expectingly, They look upon me,
[18] They apportion my garments to themselves, And for my clothing they cause a lot to fall.
[19] And Thou, O Jehovah, be not far off, O my strength, to help me haste.
[20] Deliver from the sword my soul, From the paw of a dog mine only one.
[21] Save me from the mouth of a lion:- And-from the horns of the high places Thou hast answered me!
[22] I declare Thy name to my brethren, In the midst of the assembly I praise Thee.
[23] Ye who fear Jehovah, praise ye Him, All the seed of Jacob, honour ye Him, And be afraid of Him, all ye seed of Israel.
[24] For He hath not despised, nor abominated, The affliction of the afflicted, Nor hath He hidden His face from him, And in his crying unto Him He heareth.
[25] Of Thee my praise is in the great assembly. My vows I complete before His fearers.
[26] The humble do eat and are satisfied, Praise Jehovah do those seeking Him, Your heart doth live for ever.
[27] Remember and return unto Jehovah, Do all ends of the earth, And before Thee bow themselves, Do all families of the nations,
[28] For to Jehovah is the kingdom, And He is ruling among nations.
[29] And the fat ones of earth have eaten, And they bow themselves, Before Him bow do all going down to dust, And he who hath not revived his soul.
[30] A seed doth serve Him, It is declared of the Lord to the generation.
[31] They come and declare His righteousness, To a people that is borne, that He hath made!
