Discover Psalm 22 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from my salvation and the words of my cry?
My God, I cry out by day and you do not answer;
and at night I am not silent.
But you are holy,
you who dwell among the praises of Israel.
In you our fathers
trusted, they trusted, and you delivered them.
They cried out to you and were delivered; they
trusted in you and were not ashamed.
But I am a worm and not a man, a
reproach of men, and despised of the people.
All who see me mock me,
make faces with their lips, shake their heads, saying:
It is committed to Jehovah; may he rescue you;
save him, since he was pleased with him.
But you are the one who took me out of the womb,
the one who made me trust since I was at my mother’s breasts.
To you I was entrusted from the womb;
from my mother’s womb, you are my God.
Do not be far from me, for distress is near,
and there is no one to help.
Many bulls have surrounded me;
strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me.
They open their mouths on me,
like a ravenous and roaring lion.
I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint;
my heart is like wax,
melting in the middle of my guts.
Like a pot my strength is dried up,
and my tongue sticks to my palate;
and you have put me in the dust of death.
Because dogs have surrounded me;
A gang of evildoers has encircled me;
They pierced my hands and my feet.
I can count all my bones;
they look at me and observe me.
They divided my clothes among themselves,
and for my clothes they cast lots.
But you, O Lord, do not be far off.
Oh my strength, make haste to help me.
Deliver my soul from the sword,
my life from the claw of the dog.
Save me from the lion’s mouth.
You have rescued me from the horns of wild bulls.
I will declare your name to my brothers;
in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.
You who fear the Lord, praise him;
glorify him, all you descendants of Jacob,
and fear him, all you descendants of Israel.
For he did not despise or hate the affliction of the helpless,
nor did he hide his face from him,
but when he cried out to him, he heard him.
Of you will be my praise in the great congregation;
I will fulfill my vows before those who fear him.
The humble will eat and be satisfied;
Those who seek him will praise the Lord;
your heart shall live forever.
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to Jehovah,
and all the families of the nations will worship before you.
For the kingdom is the Lord’s,
and he will rule over the nations.
All the mighty of the earth will eat and worship;
all who go down to the dust will bow down before him;
and no one can keep his own soul alive.
Posterity will serve him;
as a generation of Jehovah, she will be considered.
They will come and announce his righteousness to a people to be born,
that he has done this.
