Prophets who Rose UP EARLY



My El, my El, why hast Thou forsaken me?
why art Thou so far from helping me,
and from the words of my roaring?
O my Elohim, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not;
and in the night season, and am not silent.

But Thou art Singular,
O Thou that inhabits the praises of Ieshrael.
Our fathers trusted in Thee:
they trusted, and Thou didst deliver them.
They cried unto Thee, and were delivered:
they trusted in Thee, and were not confounded.

But I am a worm, and no man;
a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
All they that see me laugh me to scorn:
they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
He trusted on IaHUeH that He would deliver him:
let Him deliver him, seeing He delighted in him.

But Thou art He that took me out of the womb:
thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
I was cast upon Thee from the womb:
Thou art my El from my mother's belly.
Be not far from me; for trouble is near;
for there is none to help.

Many bulls have compassed me:
strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
They gaped upon me with their mouths,
as a ravening and a roaring lion.

I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint:
my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd;
and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws;
and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

For dogs have compassed me:
the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me:
they pierced my hands and my feet.
I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
They part my garments among them,
and cast lots upon my vesture.

But be not thou far from me, O IaHUeH:
O my strength, haste thee to help me.
Deliver my soul from the sword;
my darling from the power of the dog.
Save me from the lion's mouth:
for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

I will declare Thy Name unto my brethren:
in the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.
Ye that fear the IaHUeH, praise Him;
all ye the seed of Ia'aqob, exalt Him;
and fear Him, all ye the seed of Ieshrael.

For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
neither hath He hid His face from him;
but when he cried unto Him, He heard.
My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation:
I will pay my vows before them that fear Him.

The meek shall eat and be satisfied:
they shall praise IaHUeH that seek Him:
your heart shall live for ever.
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto IaHUeH:
and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee.

For the kingdom is IaHUeH's: and He is the governor among the nations.
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship:
all they that go down to the dust shall bow before Him:
and none can keep alive his own soul.
A seed shall serve Him;
it shall be accounted to IaHUeH for a generation.
They shall come, and shall declare His righteousness
unto a people that shall be born, that He hath done this.
