22:10 For Thou art He that took me out of the womb; Thou madest me trust when I was upon my mother's breasts.

22:11 Upon Thee I have been cast from my birth; Thou art my God from my mother's womb.

22:12 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

22:13 Many bulls have encompassed me; strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

22:14 They open wide their mouth against me, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

22:15 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is become like wax; it is melted in mine inmost parts.

22:16 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my throat; and Thou layest me in the dust of death.

22:17 For dogs have encompassed me; a company of evil-doers have inclosed me; like a lion, they are at my hands and my feet.

22:18 I may count all my bones; they look and gloat over me.

22:19 They part my garments among them, and for my vesture do they cast lots.

22:20 But Thou, O the Lord, be not far off; O Thou my strength, hasten to help me.

22:21 Deliver my soul from the sword; mine only one from the power of the dog.

22:22 Save me from the lion's mouth; yea, from the horns of the wild-oxen do Thou answer me.

22:23 I will declare Thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.

22:24 'Ye that fear the Lord, praise Him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and stand in awe of Him, all ye the seed of Israel.

22:25 For He hath not despised nor abhorred the lowliness of the poor; neither hath He hid His face from him; but when he cried unto Him, He heard.'

22:26 From Thee cometh my praise in the great congregation; I will pay my vows before them that fear Him.

22:27 Let the humble eat and be satisfied; let them praise the Lord that seek after Him; may your heart be quickened for ever!

22:28 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto the Lord; and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee.

22:29 For the kingdom is the Lord'S; and He is the ruler over the nations.

22:30 All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship; all they that go down to the dust shall kneel before Him, even he that cannot keep his soul alive.

22:31 A seed shall serve him; it shall be told of the L-rd unto the next generation.

22:32 They shall come and shall declare His righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that He hath done it.
