22:1My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation, The words of my roaring?
22:2My God, I call by day, and Thou answerest not, And by night, and there is no silence to me.
22:3And Thou art holy, Sitting -- the Praise of Israel.
22:4In Thee did our fathers trust -- they trusted, And Thou dost deliver them.
22:5Unto Thee they cried, and were delivered, In Thee they trusted, and were not ashamed.
22:6And I am a worm, and no man, A reproach of man, and despised of the people.
22:7All beholding me do mock at me, They make free with the lip -- shake the head,
22:8`Roll unto Jehovah, He doth deliver him, He doth deliver him, for he delighted in him.'
22:9For thou art He bringing me forth from the womb, Causing me to trust, On the breasts of my mother.
22:10On Thee I have been cast from the womb, From the belly of my mother Thou art my God.
22:11Be not far from me, For adversity is near, for there is no helper.
22:12Many bulls have surrounded me, Mighty ones of Bashan have compassed me,
22:13They have opened against me their mouth, A lion tearing and roaring.
22:14As waters I have been poured out, And separated themselves have all my bones, My heart hath been like wax, It is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15Dried up as an earthen vessel is my power, And my tongue is cleaving to my jaws.
22:16And to the dust of death thou appointest me, For surrounded me have dogs, A company of evil doers have compassed me, Piercing my hands and my feet.
22:17I count all my bones -- they look expectingly, They look upon me,
22:18They apportion my garments to themselves, And for my clothing they cause a lot to fall.
22:19And Thou, O Jehovah, be not far off, O my strength, to help me haste.
22:20Deliver from the sword my soul, From the paw of a dog mine only one.
22:21Save me from the mouth of a lion: -- And -- from the horns of the high places Thou hast answered me!
22:22I declare Thy name to my brethren, In the midst of the assembly I praise Thee.
22:23Ye who fear Jehovah, praise ye Him, All the seed of Jacob, honour ye Him, And be afraid of Him, all ye seed of Israel.
22:24For He hath not despised, nor abominated, The affliction of the afflicted, Nor hath He hidden His face from him, And in his crying unto Him He heareth.
22:25Of Thee my praise is in the great assembly. My vows I complete before His fearers.
22:26The humble do eat and are satisfied, Praise Jehovah do those seeking Him, Your heart doth live for ever.
22:27Remember and return unto Jehovah, Do all ends of the earth, And before Thee bow themselves, Do all families of the nations,
22:28For to Jehovah is the kingdom, And He is ruling among nations.
22:29And the fat ones of earth have eaten, And they bow themselves, Before Him bow do all going down to dust, And he who hath not revived his soul.
22:30A seed doth serve Him, It is declared of the Lord to the generation.
22:31They come and declare His righteousness, To a people that is borne, that He hath made!
23:1Jehovah is my shepherd, I do not lack,
23:2In pastures of tender grass He causeth me to lie down, By quiet waters He doth lead me.
23:3My soul He refresheth, He leadeth me in paths of righteousness, For His name's sake,
23:4Also -- when I walk in a valley of death-shade, I fear no evil, for Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff -- they comfort me.
23:5Thou arrangest before me a table, Over-against my adversaries, Thou hast anointed with oil my head, My cup is full!
23:6Only -- goodness and kindness pursue me, All the days of my life, And my dwelling is in the house of Jehovah, For a length of days!
24:1To Jehovah is the earth and its fulness, The world and the inhabitants in it.
24:2For He on the seas hath founded it, And on the floods He doth establish it.
24:3Who goeth up into the hill of Jehovah? And who riseth up in His holy place?
24:4The clean of hands, and pure of heart, Who hath not lifted up to vanity his soul, Nor hath sworn to deceit.
24:5He beareth away a blessing from Jehovah, Righteousness from the God of his salvation.
24:6This is a generation of those seeking Him. Seeking Thy face, O Jacob! Selah.
24:7Lift up, O gates, your heads, And be lifted up, O doors age-during, And come in doth the king of glory!
24:8Who is this -- `the king of glory?' Jehovah -- strong and mighty, Jehovah, the mighty in battle.
24:9Lift up, O gates, your heads, And be lifted up, O doors age-during, And come in doth the king of glory!
24:10Who is He -- this `king of glory?' Jehovah of hosts -- He is the king of glory! Selah.
