Psalm 22:6-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

But I am a worm and not a man,
scorned by men and despised by people.
Everyone who sees me mocks me;
they sneer[a] and shake their heads:
“He relies on[b] the Lord;
let Him rescue him;
let the Lord[c] deliver him,
since He takes pleasure in him.”


  1. Psalm 22:7 Lit separate with the lip
  2. Psalm 22:8 Or Rely on
  3. Psalm 22:8 Lit let Him

Psalm 22:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

But I am a worm and not a man,
    scorned by everyone, despised by the people.
All who see me mock me;
    they hurl insults, shaking their heads.
“He trusts in the Lord,” they say,
    “let the Lord rescue him.
Let him deliver him,
    since he delights in him.”
