O Lord, why do You reject my soul?
Why do You hide Your face from me?
“Why do You hide Your face
And consider me Your enemy?
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?
For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
Why do You hide Your face
And forget our affliction and our oppression?
Yet You have rejected us and brought us to dishonor,
And do not go out with our armies.
And do not hide Your face from Your servant,
For I am in distress; answer me quickly.
Will the Lord reject forever?
And will He never be favorable again?
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?”
