22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they
trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men,
and despised of the people.

Bashan have beset me round.
22:13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a
ravening and a roaring lion.

strength, haste thee to help me.
22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling
from the power of the dog.
22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast
heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his
face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
22:25 My praise shall be of thee in the great
congregation: I will pay my vows before them that
22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they
shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart
shall live for ever.

turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the
nations shall worship before thee.

governor among the nations.

worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow
before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
