Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest thou, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over 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 cry?
For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes; nevertheless thou hast heard the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.
I call to remembrance my songs of the night; I commune with my own heart, and my spirit made diligent search.
But thou hast cast off and abhorred thine anointed; thou hast been wroth with him.
I say then, Has God cast away his people? No, in no wise. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will uproot you from my presence and the city that I gave you and your fathers:
Why should thou forget us for ever and forsake us for such a long time?
He has received his servant Israel in remembrance of his mercy
