Psalm 22:19-28 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

19 But you, O Lord, do not be far away!
    O my help, come quickly to my aid!
20 Deliver my soul from the sword,
    my life[a] from the power of the dog!
21     Save me from the mouth of the lion!

From the horns of the wild oxen you have rescued[b] me.
22 I will tell of your name to my brothers and sisters;[c]
    in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:
23 You who fear the Lord, praise him!
    All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him;
    stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
24 For he did not despise or abhor
    the affliction of the afflicted;
he did not hide his face from me,[d]
    but heard when I[e] cried to him.

25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
    my vows I will pay before those who fear him.
26 The poor[f] shall eat and be satisfied;
    those who seek him shall praise the Lord.
    May your hearts live forever!

27 All the ends of the earth shall remember
    and turn to the Lord;
and all the families of the nations
    shall worship before him.[g]
28 For dominion belongs to the Lord,
    and he rules over the nations.
