King James Bible : Psalms : Chapter 22


22:1
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
22:2
O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
22:3
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
22:4
Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
22:5
They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
22:6
But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
22:7
All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
22:8
He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
22:9
But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.
22:10
I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
22:11
Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
22:12
Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
22:13
They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
22:14
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
22:16
For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17
I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
22:18
They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
22:19
But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
22:20
Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
22:21
Save me from the lion’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
22:22
I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
22:23
Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
22:24
For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
22:25
My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
22:26
The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
22:27
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
22:28
For the kingdom is the LORD’s: and he is the governor among the nations.
22:29
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
22:30
A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
