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.

Psalm 22 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764) upon Aijeleth H365 Shahar H7837, A Psalm H4210 of David H1732.» My God H410, my God H410, why hast thou forsaken H5800 (8804) me? [why art thou so] far H7350 from helping H3444 me, [and from] the words H1697 of my roaring H7581?
[2] O my God H430, I cry H7121 (8799) in the daytime H3119, but thou hearest H6030 (8799) not; and in the night season H3915, and am not silent H1747.
[3] But thou [art] holy H6918, [O thou] that inhabitest H3427 (8802) the praises H8416 of Israel H3478.
[4] Our fathers H1 trusted H982 (8804) in thee: they trusted H982 (8804), and thou didst deliver H6403 (8762) them.
[5] They cried H2199 (8804) unto thee, and were delivered H4422 (8738): they trusted H982 (8804) in thee, and were not confounded H954 (8804).
[6] But I [am] a worm H8438, and no man H376; a reproach H2781 of men H120, and despised H959 (8803) of the people H5971.
[7] All they that see H7200 (8802) me laugh me to scorn H3932 (8686): they shoot out H6358 (8686) the lip H8193, they shake H5128 (8686) the head H7218, [saying],
[8] He trusted H1556 (8800) on the LORD H3068 [that] he would deliver H6403 (8762) him: let him deliver H5337 (8686) him, seeing he delighted H2654 (8804) in him.
[9] But thou [art] he that took H1518 (8801) me out of the womb H990: thou didst make me hope H982 (8688) [when I was] upon my mother’s H517 breasts H7699.
[10] I was cast H7993 (8717) upon thee from the womb H7358: thou [art] my God H410 from my mother’s H517 belly H990.
[11] Be not far H7368 (8799) from me; for trouble H6869 [is] near H7138; for [there is] none to help H5826 (8802).
[12] Many H7227 bulls H6499 have compassed H5437 (8804) me: strong H47 [bulls] of Bashan H1316 have beset me round H3803 (8765).
[13] They gaped H6475 (8804) upon me [with] their mouths H6310, [as] a ravening H2963 (8802) and a roaring H7580 (8802) lion H738.
[14] I am poured out H8210 (8738) like water H4325, and all my bones H6106 are out of joint H6504 (8694): my heart H3820 is like wax H1749; it is melted H4549 (8738) in the midst H8432 of my bowels H4578.
[15] My strength H3581 is dried up H3001 (8804) like a potsherd H2789; and my tongue H3956 cleaveth H1692 (8716) to my jaws H4455; and thou hast brought H8239 (8799) me into the dust H6083 of death H4194.
[16] For dogs H3611 have compassed H5437 (8804) me: the assembly H5712 of the wicked H7489 (8688) have inclosed H5362 (8689) me: they pierced H3738 (8804) (8675) H738 my hands H3027 and my feet H7272.
[17] I may tell H5608 (8762) all my bones H6106: they look H5027 (8686) [and] stare H7200 (8799) upon me.
[18] They part H2505 (8762) my garments H899 among them, and cast H5307 (8686) lots H1486 upon my vesture H3830.
[19] But be not thou far H7368 (8799) from me, O LORD H3068: O my strength H360, haste H2363 (8798) thee to help H5833 me.
[20] Deliver H5337 (8685) my soul H5315 from the sword H2719; my darling H3173 from the power H3027 of the dog H3611.
[21] Save H3467 (8685) me from the lion’s H738 mouth H6310: for thou hast heard H6030 (8804) me from the horns H7161 of the unicorns H7214.
[22] I will declare H5608 (8762) thy name H8034 unto my brethren H251: in the midst H8432 of the congregation H6951 will I praise H1984 (8762) thee.
[23] Ye that fear H3373 the LORD H3068, praise H1984 (8761) him; all ye the seed H2233 of Jacob H3290, glorify H3513 (8761) him; and fear H1481 (8798) him, all ye the seed H2233 of Israel H3478.
[24] For he hath not despised H959 (8804) nor abhorred H8262 (8765) the affliction H6039 of the afflicted H6041; neither hath he hid H5641 (8689) his face H6440 from him; but when he cried H7768 (8763) unto him, he heard H8085 (8804).
[25] My praise H8416 [shall be] of thee in the great H7227 congregation H6951: I will pay H7999 (8762) my vows H5088 before them that fear H3373 him.
[26] The meek H6035 shall eat H398 (8799) and be satisfied H7646 (8799): they shall praise H1984 (8762) the LORD H3068 that seek H1875 (8802) him: your heart H3824 shall live H2421 (8799) for ever H5703.
[27] All the ends H657 of the world H776 shall remember H2142 (8799) and turn H7725 (8799) unto the LORD H3068: and all the kindreds H4940 of the nations H1471 shall worship H7812 (8691) before H6440 thee.
[28] For the kingdom H4410 [is] the LORD’S H3068: and he [is] the governor H4910 (8802) among the nations H1471.
[29] All [they that be] fat H1879 upon earth H776 shall eat H398 (8804) and worship H7812 (8691): all they that go down H3381 (8802) to the dust H6083 shall bow H3766 (8799) before H6440 him: and none can keep alive H2421 (8765) his own soul H5315.
[30] A seed H2233 shall serve H5647 (8799) him; it shall be accounted H5608 (8792) to the Lord H136 for a generation H1755.
[31] They shall come H935 (8799), and shall declare H5046 (8686) his righteousness H6666 unto a people H5971 that shall be born H3205 (8737), that he hath done H6213 (8804) [this].

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!
