THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

22:1My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

22:2O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

22:3But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

22:4Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

22:5They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

22:6But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

22:7All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

22:8He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

22:9But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

22:10I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

22:11Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

22:12Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

22:13They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

22:14I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

22:15My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

22:16For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

22:17I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

22:18They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

22:19But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.

22:20Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

22:21Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

22:22I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

22:23Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

22:24For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

22:25My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

22:26The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

22:27All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

22:28For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations.

22:29All they that be fat upon 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.

22:30A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

22:31They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

23:1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

23:2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

23:3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

23:4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

23:5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

23:6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

24:1The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

24:2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

24:3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

24:4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

24:5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

24:6This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

24:7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

24:8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

24:9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

24:10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
