For the leader; on b‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. ayyeleth ha‐shaḥar. ‐b Meaning of Heb. uncertain. A psalm of David.

1 2My God, my God, why have You abandoned me; why so far from delivering me and from my anguished roaring? 3My God, I cry by day—You answer not; by night, and have no respite. 4 c‐ Or “But You are holy, enthroned upon the praises of Israel.” But You are the Holy One, enthroned, the Praise of Israel. ‐c Or “But You are holy, enthroned upon the praises of Israel.” 5In You our fathers trusted; they trusted, and You rescued them. 6To You they cried out and they escaped; in You they trusted and were not disappointed. 7But I am a worm, less than human; scorned by men, despised by people. 8All who see me mock me; a‐ Lit. “they open wide with a lip.” they curl their lips, ‐a Lit. “they open wide with a lip.” they shake their heads. 9“Let him commit himself to the LORD; let Him rescue him, let Him save him, for He is pleased with him.” 10You b‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. drew me ‐b Meaning of Heb. uncertain. from the womb, made me secure at my mother's breast. 11I became Your charge at birth; from my mother's womb You have been my God. 12Do not be far from me, for trouble is near, and there is none to help. 13Many bulls surround me, mighty ones of Bashan encircle me. 14They open their mouths at me like tearing, roaring lions. 15 c‐ Lit. “I am poured out like water.” My life ebbs away: ‐c Lit. “I am poured out like water.” all my bones are disjointed; my heart is like wax, melting within me; 16my vigor dries up like a shard; my tongue cleaves to my palate; You commit me to the dust of death. 17Dogs surround me; a pack of evil ones closes in on me, d‐ With Rashi; cf. Isa. 38.13 . like lions [they maul] my hands and feet. ‐d With Rashi; cf. Isa. 38.13 . 18I take the count of all my bones while they look on and gloat. 19They divide my clothes among themselves, casting lots for my garments. 20But You, O LORD, be not far off; my strength, hasten to my aid. 21Save my life from the sword, my precious life e Lit. “only one.” from the clutches of a dog. 22Deliver me from a lion's mouth; from the horns of wild oxen rescue f Lit. “answer.” me. 23Then will I proclaim Your fame to my brethren, praise You in the congregation. 24You who fear the LORD, praise Him! All you offspring of Jacob, honor Him! Be in dread of Him, all you offspring of Israel! 25For He did not scorn, He did not spurn the plea a Or “plight.” of the lowly; He did not hide His face from him; when he cried out to Him, He listened. 26 b‐ Lit. “From You is my praise.” Because of You I offer praise ‐b Lit. “From You is my praise.” in the great congregation; I pay my vows in the presence of His worshipers. 27Let the lowly eat and be satisfied; let all who seek the LORD praise Him. Always be of good cheer! 28Let all the ends of the earth pay heed and turn to the LORD, and the peoples of all nations prostrate themselves before You; 29for kingship is the LORD' s and He rules the nations. 30 c‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain; others “All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship; / All they that go down to the dust shall kneel before Him, / Even he that cannot keep his soul alive.” All those in full vigor shall eat and prostrate themselves; all those at death's door, whose spirits flag, shall bend the knee before Him. ‐c Meaning of Heb. uncertain; others “All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship; / All they that go down to the dust shall kneel before Him, / Even he that cannot keep his soul alive.” 31Offspring shall serve Him; the Lord's fame shall be proclaimed to the generation‐to come; they shall tell of His beneficence to people yet to be born, for He has acted.
