A cry of anguish
To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David.
My Mark 15:34God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not;
And in the night season, and am not silent.
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the Deut. 10:21praises of Israel.
Our fathers trusted in thee:
They trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
They cried unto thee, and were delivered:
Is. 49:23They trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
But I am Job 25:6a worm, and no man;
Is. 53:3A reproach of men, and despised of the people.
Mat. 27:39All they that see me laugh me to scorn:
They shoot out the lip, Job 16:4they shake the head, saying,
Mat. 27:43He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him:
Ps. 91:14Let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
Ps. 71:6But thou art he that took me out of the womb:
Thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
I was cast upon thee from the womb:
Is. 46:3Thou art my God from my mother's belly.
Be not far from me; for trouble is near;
For there is none to help.
Ps. 68:30Many bulls have compassed me:
Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
Lam. 2:16They gaped upon me with their mouths,
As a ravening and a roaring lion.
I am poured out like water,
Dan. 5:6And all my bones are out of joint:
My heart is like wax;
It is melted in the midst of my bowels.
Prov. 17:22My strength is dried up like a potsherd;
And John 19:28my 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:
Mat. 27:35They pierced my hands and my feet.
I may tell all my bones:
Luke 23:27,35They look and stare upon me.
Luke 23:34They part my garments among them,
And cast lots upon my vesture.
But be not thou far from me, O Lord:
O my strength, haste thee to help me.
Deliver my soul from the sword;
Ps. 35:17My darling from the power of the dog.
2 Tim. 4:17Save me from the lion's mouth:
Is. 34:7For thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
A song of praise
Heb. 2:12I will declare thy name unto Rom. 8:29my brethren:
In the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Ps. 135:19Ye 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 afflicted;
Neither hath he hid his face from him;
But Heb. 5:7when he cried unto him, he heard.
Ps. 35:18My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation:
Eccl. 5:4I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
The meek shall eat and be satisfied:
They shall praise the Lord that seek him:
Your heart shall live for ever.
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord:
And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
Mat. 6:13For the kingdom is the Lord's:
And he is the governor among the nations.
Ps. 45:12All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship:
Is. 26:19All they that go down to the dust shall bow before him:
And none can keep alive his own soul.
A seed shall serve him;
Ps. 87:6It shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
Ps. 78:6They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness
Unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.
