Why are you far from my deliverance
and from the words of my groaning?
and at night, but I find no rest.
sitting enthroned upon the praises of Israel.
They trusted, and you delivered them.
They trusted in you and were not disappointed.
a reproach of mankind, and despised by people.
They insult me with their lips. They shake their heads, saying,
let him deliver him.
Let him rescue him,
since he delights in him.”
You made me trust even at my mother’s breasts.
You have been my God from my mother’s belly.
For there is no one to help.
Mighty bulls of Bashan have encircled me.
like a lion tearing prey and roaring.
All my bones are dislocated.
My heart is like wax;
it is melted within me.
A company of evildoers have enclosed me.
They have pierced my hands and feet.
They look and stare at me.
They cast lots for my clothing.
O my Strength; hurry to help me.
my only life from the power of the dog.
Yes, from the horns of the wild oxen,
you have answered me.
In the midst of the assembly, I will praise you.
All you descendants of Jacob, glorify him!
Tremble before him, all you descendants of Israel!
the affliction of the afflicted person,
nor has he hidden his face from him;
but when he cried out to him, he heard.
I will fulfil my vows before those who fear him.
Those who seek Yahweh will praise him.
May your hearts live forever.
and turn to Yahweh.
All the families of the nations
will worship in your presence.
And he rules over the nations.
All those who go down to the dust
will bow down before his face,
even he who cannot keep his soul alive.
The next generation will be told about the Lord.
to a people that will be born,
for he has done it.
