1 To the Chief Musician, on the deer of the dawn. A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why have You forsaken me, and [are] far from my deliverance, [and from] the words of my groaning?
2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not answer; and in the night, and am not silent.
3 But You [are] holy, enthroned on 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 ashamed.
6 But I [am] a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised by the people.
7 All who see Me mock me; they shoot out the lip; they shake the head, [saying] ,
8 He trusted on the LORD; let Him deliver him; let Him rescue Him, since He delights in Him!
9 For You [are He] who took Me out of the womb, causing Me to trust while] on My mother's breasts.
10 I was cast on You from the womb; You [are] My God from My mother's belly.
11 Be not far from Me; for trouble [is] near, for [there is] none to help.
12 Many bulls have circled around Me; strong [bulls] Of Bashan have surrounded Me.
13 They opened wide their mouths on Me, [like] a ripping and a roaring lion.
14 I am poured out like water, and all My bones are spread apart; My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My bowels.
15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and My tongue clings to My jaws;
16 and You have brought Me into the dust of death. For dogs have circled around Me; the band of spoilers have hemmed Me in, piercers of My hands and My feet.
17 I can count all My bones; they look [and] stare at Me.
18 They divide My garments among them and cast lots for My clothing.
19 But You, O LORD, be not far from Me; O My strength, hurry to help Me!
20 Deliver My soul from the sword, My only one from the dog's hand.
21 Save Me from the lion's mouth; from the wild oxen's horns. You have answered me.
22 I will declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise You.
23 You who fear the LORD, praise Him; all of you, the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and fear Him all the seed of Israel.
24 For He has not despised nor hated the affliction of the afflicted; and He has not hidden His face from him, but when he cried to Him, He heard.
25 My praise [shall be] of You in the great congregation; I will pay my vows before the ones who fear Him.
26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek the LORD shall praise Him; your heart shall live forever.
27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before You.
28 For the kingdom [is] the LORD's; and He [is] the ruler among the nations.
29 All the fat [ones] on the earth shall eat and worship; all those who go down to the dust shall bow before Him; and none can keep alive his own soul.
30 A seed shall serve Him; it shall be spoken of the LORD to the [coming] generation.
31 They shall come, and shall declare His righteousness to a people that shall [yet] be born, that He has done [this].
