Be not far from me, for trouble is near;
For there is none to help.
For he will deliver the needy when he cries for help,
The afflicted also, and him who has no helper.
Why do You stand afar off, O Lord?
Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?
O God, do not be far from me;
O my God, hasten to my help!
“For the Lord will vindicate His people,
And will have compassion on His servants,
When He sees that their strength is gone,
And there is none remaining, bond or free.
For the Lord saw the affliction of Israel, which was very bitter; for there was neither bond nor free, nor was there any helper for Israel.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
You have seen it, O Lord, do not keep silent;
O Lord, do not be far from me.
Do not forsake me, O Lord;
O my God, do not be far from me!
For the choir director; according to Shoshannim. A Psalm of David.
Save me, O God,
For the waters have threatened my life.
Oh draw near to my soul and redeem it;
Ransom me because of my enemies!
Look to the right and see;
For there is no one who regards me;
There is no escape for me;
No one cares for my soul.
“I looked, and there was no one to help,
And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold;
So My own arm brought salvation to Me,
And My wrath upheld Me.
But all this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures of the prophets.” Then all the disciples left Him and fled.
And again he denied it with an oath, “I do not know the man.”
Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know the man!” And immediately a rooster crowed.
Behold, an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each to his own home, and to leave Me alone; and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His piety.
