English Standard Version
14 I am (D)poured out like water,
and all my bones are (E)out of joint;
my (F)heart is like (G)wax;
it is melted within my breast;
15 my strength is (H)dried up like a potsherd,
and my (I)tongue sticks to my jaws;
you lay me in the dust of death.
16 For (J)dogs encompass me;
a company of evildoers (K)encircles me;
they have (L)pierced my hands and feet[a]—
17 I can count all my bones—
they (M)stare and gloat over me;
18 (N)they divide my garments among them,
and for my clothing they cast lots.
19 But you, O Lord, (O)do not be far off!
O you my help, (P)come quickly to my aid!
20 Deliver my soul from the sword,
my precious life from the power of (Q)the dog!
21 Save me from (R)the mouth of the lion!
You have rescued[b] me from the horns of (S)the wild oxen!
22 (T)I will tell of your name to my (U)brothers;
in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:
23 You who (V)fear the Lord, praise him!
All you offspring of Jacob, (W)glorify him,
and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
24 For he has not despised or abhorred
the affliction of (X)the afflicted,
and he has not (Y)hidden his face from him,
but has heard, when he (Z)cried to him.
25 From you comes my praise in the great (AA)congregation;
my (AB)vows I will (AC)perform before those who fear him.
26 (AD)The afflicted[c] shall (AE)eat and be satisfied;
those who seek him shall praise the Lord!
May your hearts (AF)live forever!
27 All (AG)the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord,
and all (AH)the families of the nations
shall worship before you.
28 For (AI)kingship belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.
29 All (AJ)the prosperous of the earth eat and worship;
before him shall (AK)bow all who go down to the dust,
even the one who could not (AL)keep himself alive.
30 Posterity shall serve him;
it shall be told of the Lord to the coming (AM)generation;
31 they shall (AN)come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet (AO)unborn,
that he has done it.
