Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from Jehovah, and the justice due to me is passed away from my God?
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning?
As for me, I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: Nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications When I cried unto thee.
I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart; And my spirit maketh diligent search.
But thou hast cast off and rejected, Thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.
I say then, Did God cast off his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou forget me for ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
therefore, behold, I will utterly forget you, and I will cast you off, and the city that I gave unto you and to your fathers, away from my presence:
Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, And forsake us so long time?
He hath given help to Israel his servant, That he might remember mercy
