Even when I cry out and call for help,
He shuts out my prayer.
“I cry out to You for help, but You do not answer me;
I stand up, and You turn Your attention against me.
O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer;
And by night, but I have no rest.
“Behold, I cry, ‘Violence!’ but I get no answer;
I shout for help, but there is no justice.
O Lord God of hosts,
How long will You be angry with the prayer of Your people?
You have covered Yourself with a cloud
So that no prayer can pass through.
How long, O Lord, will I call for help,
And You will not hear?
I cry out to You, “Violence!”
Yet You do not save.
About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
