In You they trusted and were not disappointed.
|Ps 22:6 ¶ But I am a worm and not a man,
A reproach of men and despised by the people.
|Ps 22:7 All who see me sneer at me;

Let Him rescue him, because He delights in him."
|Ps 22:9 ¶ Yet You are He who brought me forth from the womb;

As a ravening and a roaring lion.
|Ps 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 me.
|Ps 22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd,
And my tongue cleaves to my jaws;
And You lay me in the dust of death.
|Ps 22:16 For dogs have surrounded me;
A band of evildoers has encompassed me;
They pierced my hands and my feet.
|Ps 22:17 I can count all my bones.
They look, they stare at me;
|Ps 22:18 They divide my garments among them,
And for my clothing they cast lots.
|Ps 22:19 ¶ But You, O LORD, be not far off;
O You my help, hasten to my assistance.

My only life from the power of the dog.

From the horns of the wild oxen You answer me.

In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
|Ps 22:23 You who fear the LORD, praise Him;
All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him,
And stand in awe of Him, all you descendants of Israel.

Nor has He hidden His face from him;
But when he cried to Him for help, He heard.

I shall pay my vows before those who fear Him.

Let your heart live forever!

And all the families of the nations will worship before You.

And He rules over the nations.

It will be told of the Lord to the coming generation.
|Ps 22:31 They will come and will declare His righteousness
To a people who will be born, that He has performed it.
