1[For the choirmaster To 'the Doe of the Dawn' Psalm Of David] My God, my God, why have youforsaken me? The words of my groaning do nothing to save me. 2My God, I cal by day but you do not answer, at night, but I find no respite. 3Yet you, the Holy One, who make your home in the praises of Israel, 4in you our ancestors put their trust, they trusted and you set them free. 5To you they cal ed for help and were delivered; in you they trusted and were not put to shame. 6But I am a worm, less than human, scorn of mankind, contempt of the people; 7al who see me jeer at me, they sneer and wag their heads, 8'He trusted himself to Yahweh, let Yahweh set him free! Let him deliver him, as he took such delight inhim.' 9It was you who drew me from the womb and soothed me on my mother's breast. 10On you was I cast from my birth, from the womb I have belonged to you. 11Do not hold aloof, for trouble is upon me, and no one to help me! 12Many bulls are encircling me, wild bul s of Bashan closing in on me. 13Lions ravening and roaring open their jaws at me. 14My strength is trickling away, my bones are al disjointed, my heart has turned to wax, melting insideme. 15My mouth is dry as earthenware, my tongue sticks to my jaw. You lay me down in the dust of death. 16A pack of dogs surrounds me, a gang of villains closing in on me as if to hack off my hands and myfeet. 17I can count every one of my bones, while they look on and gloat; 18they divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing. 19Yahweh, do not hold aloof! My strength, come quickly to my help, 20rescue my soul from the sword, the one life I have from the grasp of the dog! 21Save me from the lion's mouth, my poor life from the wild bul s' horns! 22I shal proclaim your name to my brothers, praise you in ful assembly: 23'You who fear Yahweh, praise him! Al the race of Jacob, honour him! Revere him, all the race ofIsrael!' 24For he has not despised nor disregarded the poverty of the poor, has not turned away his face, buthas listened to the cry for help. 25Of you is my praise in the thronged assembly, I wil perform my vows before al who fear him. 26The poor wil eat and be fil ed, those who seek Yahweh wil praise him, 'May your heart live for ever.' 27The whole wide world wil remember and return to Yahweh, al the families of nations bow downbefore him. 28For to Yahweh, ruler of the nations, belongs kingly power! 29Al who prosper on earth wil bow before him, al who go down to the dust wil do reverence beforehim. And those who are dead, 30their descendants wil serve him, wil proclaim his name to generations 31stil to come; and these will tel of his saving justice to a people yet unborn: he has fulfilled it.
