Psalm 22:13
Context
Why Have You Forsaken Me?

1My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? 2O my God, I cry in the day time, but you hear not; and in the night season, and am not silent. 3But you are holy, O you that inhabit the praises of Israel. 4Our fathers trusted in you: they trusted, and you did deliver them. 5They cried to you, and were delivered: they trusted in you, and were not confounded. 6But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. 7All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 8He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. 9But you are he that took me out of the womb: you did make me hope when I was on my mother's breasts. 10I was cast on you from the womb: you are my God from my mother's belly. 11Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help. 12Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. 13They gaped on me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. 14I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the middle of my bowels. 15My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue sticks to my jaws; and you have brought me into the dust of death. 16For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 17I may tell all my bones: they look and stare on me. 18They part my garments among them, and cast lots on my clothing. 19But be not you far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste you to help me. 20Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. 21Save me from the lion's mouth: for you have heard me from the horns of the unicorns. 22I will declare your name to my brothers: in the middle of the congregation will I praise you. 23You that fear the LORD, praise him; all you the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all you the seed of Israel. 24For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has he hid his face from him; but when he cried to him, he heard. 25My praise shall be of you in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him. 26The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever. 27All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before you. 28For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations. 29All they that be fat on 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. 30A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. 31They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness to a people that shall be born, that he has done this.
