   1: My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [Why art thou so] far from helping me, [and from] the words of my groaning?
   2: O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou answerest not; And in the night season, and am not silent.
   3: But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
   4: Our fathers trusted in thee: They trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
   5: They cried unto thee, and were delivered: They trusted in thee, and were not put to shame.
   6: But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised of the people.
   7: All they that see me laugh me to scorn: They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, [saying],
   8: Commit [thyself] unto Jehovah; Let him deliver him: Let him rescue him, seeing he delighteth in him.
   9: But thou art he that took me out of the womb; Thou didst make me trust [when I was] upon my mother's breasts.
   10: I was cast upon thee from the womb; Thou art my God since my mother bare me.
   11: Be not far from me; for trouble is near; For there is none to help.
   12: Many bulls have compassed me; Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
   13: They gape upon me with their mouth, [As] a ravening and a roaring lion.
   14: I am poured out like water, And 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; And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; And thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
   16: For dogs have compassed me: A company of evil-doers have inclosed me; They pierced my hands and my feet.
   17: I may count all my bones; They look and stare upon me.
   18: They part my garments among them, And upon my vesture do they cast lots.
   19: But be not thou far off, O Jehovah: O thou my succor, haste thee to help me.
   20: Deliver my soul from the sword, My darling from the power of the dog.
   21: Save me from the lion's mouth; Yea, from the horns of the wild-oxen thou hast answered me.
   22: I will declare thy name unto my brethren: In the midst of the assembly will I praise thee.
   23: Ye that fear Jehovah, praise him; All ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; And stand in awe of him, all ye the seed of Israel.
   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.
   25: Of thee cometh my praise in the great assembly: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
   26: The meek shall eat and be satisfied; They shall praise Jehovah that seek after him: Let your heart live for ever.
   27: All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto Jehovah; And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
   28: For the kingdom is Jehovah's; And he is the ruler over the nations.
   29: All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship: All they that go down to the dust shall bow before him, Even he that cannot keep his soul alive.
   30: A seed shall serve him; It shall be told of the Lord unto the [next] generation.
   31: They shall come and shall declare his righteousness Unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done it.
