Amplified Bible

Psalm 22

A Cry of Anguish and a Song of Praise.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] Aijeleth Hashshahar (The Doe of the Dawn). A Psalm of David.

1[a]My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?
Why are You so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning?

O my God, I call out by day, but You do not answer;
And by night, but I find no rest nor quiet.

But You are holy,
O You who are enthroned in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered].

In You our fathers trusted [leaned on, relied on, and were confident];
They trusted and You rescued them.

They cried out to You and were delivered;
They trusted in You and were not disappointed or ashamed.


But I am [treated as] a worm [insignificant and powerless] and not a man;
I am the scorn of men and despised by the people.

All who see me laugh at me and mock me;
They [insultingly] open their lips, they shake their head, saying,

“He trusted and committed himself to the Lord, let Him save him.
Let Him rescue him, because He delights in him.”


Yet You are He who pulled me out of the womb;
You made me trust when on my mother’s breasts.
10 
I was cast upon You from birth;
From my mother’s womb You have been my God.

11 
Do not be far from me, for trouble is near;
And there is no one to help.
12 
Many [enemies like] bulls have surrounded me;
Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me.
13 
They open wide their mouths against me,
Like a ravening and a roaring lion.
14 
I am poured out like water,
And all my bones are out of joint.
My heart is like wax;
It is melted [by anguish] within me.
15 
My strength is dried up like a fragment of clay pottery;
And my [dry] tongue clings to my jaws;
And You have laid me in the dust of death.
16 
For [a pack of] dogs have surrounded me;
A gang of evildoers has encircled me,
They pierced my hands and my feet.
17 
I can count all my bones;
They look, they stare at me.
18 
They divide my clothing among them
And cast lots for my [b]garment.

19 
But You, O Lord, do not be far from me;
O You my help, come quickly to my assistance.
20 
Rescue my life from the sword,
My only life from the paw of the dog (the executioner).
21 
Save me from the lion’s mouth;
From the horns of the wild oxen You answer me.

22 
I will tell of Your name to my countrymen;
In the midst of the congregation I will praise You.
23 
You who fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence], praise Him!
All you descendants of Jacob, honor Him.
Fear Him [with submissive wonder], all you descendants of Israel.
24 
For He has not despised nor detested the suffering of the afflicted;
Nor has He hidden His face from him;
But when he cried to Him for help, He listened.

25 
My praise will be of You in the great assembly.
I will pay my vows [made in the time of trouble] before those who [reverently] fear Him.
26 
The afflicted will eat and be satisfied;
Those who [diligently] seek Him and require Him [as their greatest need] will praise the Lord.
May your hearts live forever!
27 
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord,
And all the families of the nations will bow down and worship before You,
28 
For the kingship and the kingdom are the Lord’s
And He rules over the nations.
29 
All the prosperous of the earth will eat and worship;
All those who go down to the dust (the dead) will bow before Him,
Even he who cannot keep his soul alive.
30 
Posterity will serve Him;
They will tell of the Lord to the next generation.
31 
They will come and declare His righteousness
To a people yet to be born—that He has done it [and that it is finished].

诗篇 22

苦难中的呼求和感恩

大卫的诗,交给乐长,调用“朝鹿”。

1我的上帝,我的上帝,
你为何离弃我?
为何迟迟不来救我,
不听我的哀号呢?
我的上帝啊,
我日夜不停地呼求,
你却没有回应。
然而,你是圣洁的,
你的宝座设立在以色列人的颂赞之上。
我们的祖先信靠你,
他们信靠你,
你就拯救他们。
他们向你呼求,
就得到拯救;
他们信靠你,
就不会失望。

但我好像不是人,只是一条虫,
受尽人的羞辱和藐视。
看见我的人都讥笑我,
他们撇着嘴、摇着头说:
“他信靠耶和华,
让耶和华救他吧!
既然耶和华喜悦他,
让耶和华拯救他吧!”
耶和华啊,
是你使我从母腹中安然出生,
让我在母亲怀里便倚靠你。
10 我一出生就被交托在你手中,
你从我出母胎就是我的上帝。
11 求你不要远离我,
因为危难当头,无人帮我。
12 我被许多仇敌围困,
他们像巴珊的公牛那样强壮。
13 他们张口要吞噬我,
如同吼叫着撕食猎物的狮子。

14 我的力量如水消逝,
我的骨头都脱了节,
我的心如蜡熔化。
15 我的力量枯竭如焦土,
我的舌头发干紧贴上颚。
你把我放在死亡的尘土中。
16 恶人包围我,犹如一群恶犬,
他们刺伤我的手脚。
17 我身上的骨头历历可见,
人们都幸灾乐祸地看着我。
18 他们分我的外衣,
又为我的内衣抽签。
19 耶和华啊,求你不要远离我。
你是我的力量,
求你快来帮助我。
20 求你救我逃脱刀剑之灾,
从这些恶犬的利爪下拯救我的生命。
21 求你救我脱离狮子的口,
使我脱离野牛的角。

22 我要向众弟兄传扬你的名,
在会众当中赞美你。
23 敬畏耶和华的人啊,
你们都要赞美祂,
雅各的后裔都要尊崇祂的名,
以色列的后裔都要敬畏祂。
24 因为祂没有藐视、厌恶苦难中的人,
也没有掩面不顾他们,
而是垂听他们的呼求。

25 我要在大会中赞美你,
在敬畏你的人面前履行我的誓言。
26 穷苦人必得饱足,
寻求耶和华的人必赞美祂,
他们的心要永远欢欣跳跃。
27 普世都要心系耶和华,归向祂,
各国人民都要敬拜祂。
28 因为耶和华是主宰,
祂统治列国。
29 世上的富贵人要敬拜祂,
必归尘土的世人都要敬拜祂。
30 世世代代的人都要事奉祂,
传扬主所行的奇事。
31 他们也要向未来的世代传讲祂的公义作为。
