Forsaken

Psalm 22: 1-11

My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?
Why are You so far from helping Me,
And from the words of My groaning?

2
O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear;
And in the night season, and am not silent.

3
But You are holy,
Enthroned in the praises of Israel.

4
Our fathers trusted in You;
They trusted, and You delivered them.

5
They cried to You, and were delivered;
They trusted in You, and were not ashamed.

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

7
All those who see Me ridicule Me;
They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

8
“He trusted[b] in the Lord, let Him rescue Him;
Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!”

9
But You are He who took Me out of the womb;
You made Me trust while on My mother’s breasts.

10
I was cast upon You from birth.
From My mother’s womb
You have been My God.

11
Be not far from Me,
For trouble is near;
For there is none to help.
