My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? and are so far from my cry and from the words of my distress?
2. O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not answer; by night as well, but I find no rest.
3. Yet you are the Holy One, enthroned upon the praises of Israel.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? and are so far from my cry and from the words of my distress?
4. Our forefathers put their trust in you; they trusted, and you delivered them.
5. They cried out to you and were delivered; they trusted in you and were not put to shame.
6. But as for me, I am a worm and no man, scorned by all and despised by the people.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? and are so far from my cry and from the words of my distress?
7. All who see me laugh me to scorn; they curl their lips and wag their heads, saying,
8. "He trusted in the Lord; let him deliver him; let him rescue him, if he delights in him."
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? and are so far from my cry and from the words of my distress?
9. Yet you are he who took me out of the womb, and kept me safe upon my mother's breast.
10. I have been entrusted to you ever since I was born; you were my God when I was still in my mother's womb.
11. Be not far from me, for trouble is near, and there is none to help.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? and are so far from my cry and from the words of my distress?
12. Many young bulls encircle me; strong bulls of Bashan surround me.
13. They open wide their jaws at me, like a ravening and a roaring lion.
14. I am poured out like water; all my bones are out of joint; my heart within my breast is melting wax.
15. My mouth is dried out like a potsherd; my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; and you have laid me in the dust of the grave.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? and are so far from my cry and from the words of my distress?
