Psalm 22
Orthodox Jewish Bible
1 (For the one directing. To the Deer of the Dawn. Mizmor Dovid.) Eli, Eli, lamah azavtani? (T.N. see Mt 27:46 ) Why art Thou so far from my yeshuah, and from the words of my groaning?

2 (3) (3) Elohai, I cry yomam, but Thou hearest not; and v'lailah, and am not silent.

3 (4) (4) But Atah Kadosh, O Thou enthroned on the tehillot Yisroel.

4 (5) (5) Avoteinu trusted in Thee; they had bitachon, and Thou didst deliver them.

5 (6) (6) They cried unto Thee, and were delivered; they had bitachon in Thee, and were not disappointed.

6 (7) (7) But I am a tola'at, and no ish; a reproach of men, and despised of the people [T.N. see Isaiah 53:3 on the despised Moshiach].

7 (8) (8) All they that see me mock me; they shoot out the lip, they shake the rosh, saying,

8 (9) (9) He trusted in Hashem; let Hashem rescue him; let Him deliver him, since He delights in him.

9 (10) (10) But Thou art He that took me out of the womb; Thou didst make me trust when I was upon the breasts of immi.

10 (11) (11) I was cast upon Thee from the womb; Thou art Eli from the womb of immi.

11 (12) (12) Be not far from me; for tzoros is near; and there is none to help.

12 (13) (13) Parim rabbim (many bulls) have encompassed me; strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round about.

13 (14) (14) They opened wide their mouths upon me, like an aryeh roaring and tearing prey.

14 (15) (15) I am poured out like mayim, and all my atzmot are out of joint; my lev is like wax; it is melted away within me.

15 (16) (16) My ko'ach is dried up like baked clay; and my leshon cleaveth to my jaws; and Thou layest me in the aphar mavet (dust of death).

16 (17) (17) For kelavim have surrounded me; the Adat Mere'im (congregation of evil men) have enclosed me; ka'aru yadai v'ragelai (they pierced my hands and my feet; T.N. see Isa 53:5; Zech 12:10 and medieval Hebrew Scripture manuscripts as well as the Targum HaShivim and the Dead Sea Scrolls Nahal Hever. Only through G-d's Word can we know G-d's salvation (Psalm 119:81; 2 Tim 3:15). G-d's Son (Proverbs 30:4), the source of revelation (Proverbs 30:3-5) and love (Proverbs 8:17), functioned as an Amon (Craftsman, master builder, Proverbs 8:30) or Creative Wisdom at His side as the source of creativity (Proverbs 8:12; 8:22; 8:30) and love (Proverbs 8:17). And this Son of G-d took on flesh as the Son of G-d Messiah (Psalm 2:7; 1 Chronicles 17:13; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:5-6), David's L-rd (Psalm 110:1). And whoever calls on the Name of the L-rd will be saved (Joel 2:32). G-d's Word, His Son, incarnated as the Son of G-d Messiah, has a prophesied Name. His prophesied Name is Yeshua given through Messiah's Namesake Yeshua the High Priest who made the kaporah in 516 BCE ending the Golus (Exile) of abandonment from G-d (Isaiah 54:7) lasting 70 years from 586 BCE to 516 BCE. Yeshua is the Kohen after the order of Melki-Tzedek (Ps 110:4) who in his abandonment (Matthew 27:46) made the kaporah ending our Exile from G-d, our exile of sin and death (Matt. 1:12-17).].

17 (18) (18) I can count all my atzmot; the people stare and gloat at me.

18 (19) (19) They divide up my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast goral (lots) [Mt 27:35; Lk 23:34; Yn 19:24).

19 (20) (20) But be not Thou far from me, Hashem; O my strength, hasten Thee to help me.

20 (21) (21) Deliver my nefesh from the cherev, my yechid (only one, only [nefesh)] from the power of the kelev (dog).

21 (22) (22) Hoshieini from the mouth of the aryeh; for Thou hast heard me from the karnayim of the wild bulls.

22 (23) (23) I will declare Thy Shem unto my Achim; in the midst of the Kahal will I praise Thee.

23 (24) (24) Ye that fear Hashem, praise Him; all ye Zera Ya'akov, give Him kavod; and fear Him, all ye Zera Yisroel.

24 (25) (25) For He hath not despised nor disdained the enut ani (affliction of the afflicted); neither hath He hid His face from him; but when he cried unto Him, He heard.

25 (26) (26) My tehillah shall be from Thee in the Kahal Rav; I will fulfill my nedar before them that fear Him.

26 (27) (27) The anavim (meek) shall eat and be satisfied; they that seek Him shall praise Hashem. Let your levav live forever!

27 (28) (28) All the ends of HaAretz shall remember and turn unto Hashem; and all the mishpechot of the Goyim shall bow down in worship before Thee.

28 (29) (29) For the Meluchah is Hashem's: and He is the Moshel over the Goyim.

29 (30) (30) All they that thrive upon HaAretz shall eat and worship; all they that go down to the aphar (dust) shall bow before Him; even he who cannot keep alive his own nefesh.

30 (31) (31) Zera shall serve Him; it shall be told to the generation [to come] concerning Adonoi.

31 (32) (32) They shall come, and shall declare His tzedek unto an Am Nolad (a [future] people that shall be born), that He hath done this.
