PSALM 22

Plea for Deliverance from Suffering and Hostility


Psalm 22:1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from helping me, from the words of my groaning?


Psalm 22:2 O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer; and by night, but find no rest.


Psalm 22:3 Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.


Psalm 22:4 In you our fathers trusted; they trusted, and you delivered them.


Psalm 22:5 To you they cried, and were saved; in you they trusted, and were not disappointed.


Psalm 22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; scorned by men, and despised by the people.


Psalm 22:7 All who see me mock at me, they make mouths at me, they wag their heads;


Psalm 22:8 “He committed his cause to the LORD; let him deliver him, let him rescue him, for he delights in him!”


Psalm 22:9 Yet you are he who took me from the womb; you kept me safe upon my mother’s breasts.


Psalm 22:10 Upon you was I cast from my birth, and since my mother bore me you have been my God.


Psalm 22:11 Be not far from me, for trouble is near and there is none to help.


Psalm 22:12 Many bulls encompass me, strong bulls of Bashan surround me;


Psalm 22:13 they open wide their mouths at me, like a ravening and roaring lion.


Psalm 22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax, it is melted within my breast;


Psalm 22:15 my strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue cleaves to my jaws; you lay me in the dust of death.


Psalm 22:16 Yes, dogs are round about me; a company of evildoers encircle me; they have pierced  my hands and feet


Psalm 22:17 I can count all my bones they stare and gloat over me;


Psalm 22:18they divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.


Psalm 22:19 But you, O LORD, be not far off! O my help, hasten to my aid!


Psalm 22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword, my life  from the power of the dog!


Psalm 22:21 Save me from the mouth of the lion, my afflicted soul  from the horns of the wild oxen!


Psalm 22:22 I will tell of your name to my brethren; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:


Psalm 22:23 You who fear the LORD, praise him! all you sons of Jacob, glorify him, and stand in awe of him, all you sons of Israel!


Psalm 22:24 For he has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; and he has not hidden his face from him, but has heard, when he cried to him.


Psalm 22:25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will pay before those who fear him.


Psalm 22:26 The afflicted  shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the LORD! May your hearts live for ever!


Psalm 22:27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD;and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.


Psalm 22:28 For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations.


Psalm 22:29 Yes, to him  shall all the proud of the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and he who cannot keep himself alive.


Psalm 22:30 Posterity shall serve him; men shall tell of the Lord to the coming generation,


Psalm 22:31 and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, that he has wrought it.
