My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
Matt 27:46 Mark 15:34
|2||O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.|
|3||But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.|
|4||Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.|
|5||They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.|
But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and 1despised of the people.
All they that see me laugh me to 1scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
He 1trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
|9||But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.|
|10||I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.|
|11||Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.|
|12||Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.|
|13||They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.|
|14||I 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.|
|15||My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.|
For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
Zech 12:10 John 19:37
|17||I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.|
They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
Matt 27:35 John 19:24
|19||But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.|
|20||Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.|
|21||Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.|
I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
|23||Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.|
For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the 1afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
|25||My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.|
|26||The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.|
|27||All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.|
|28||For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.|
|29||All 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.|
|30||A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.|
|31||They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.|
