Douay-Rheims Bible

Psalm of the Cross

(Matthew 27:45-56; Mark 15:33-41; Luke 23:44-49; John 19:28-30)

1{21:1}Unto the end, for the morning protection, a psalm for David. [2] O God my God, look upon me: why hast thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation are the words of my sins.

2{21:3}O my God, I shall cry by day, and thou wilt not hear: and by night, and it shall not be reputed as folly in me.

3{21:4}But thou dwellest in the holy place, the praise of Israel.

4{21:5}In thee have our fathers hoped: they have hoped, and thou hast delivered them.

5{21:6}They cried to thee, and they were saved: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

6{21:7}But I am a worm, and no man: the reproach of men, and the outcast of the people.

7{21:8}All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head.

8{21:9}He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him.

9{21:10}For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: my hope from the breasts of my mother.

10{21:11}I was cast upon thee from the womb. From my mother's womb thou art my God,

11{21:12}Depart not from me. For tribulation is very near: for there is none to help me.

12{21:13}Many calves have surrounded me: fat bulls have besieged me.

13{21:14}They have opened their mouths against me, as a lion ravening and roaring.

14{21:15}I am poured out like water; and all my bones are scattered. My heart is become like wax melting in the midst of my bowels.

15{21:16}My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue hath cleaved to my jaws: and thou hast brought me down into the dust of death.

16{21:17}For many dogs have encompassed me: the council of the malignant hath besieged me. They have dug my hands and feet.

17{21:18}They have numbered all my bones. And they have looked and stared upon me.

18{21:19}They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots.

19{21:20}But thou, O Lord, remove not thy help to a distance from me; look towards my defence.

20{21:21}Deliver, O God, my soul from the sword: my only one from the hand of the dog.

21{21:22}Save me from the lion's mouth; and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns.

22{21:23}I will declare thy name to my brethren: in the midst of the church will I praise thee.

23{21:24}Ye that fear the Lord, praise him: all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him.

24{21:25}Let all the seed of Israel fear him: because he hath not slighted nor despised the supplication of the poor man. Neither hath he turned away his face from me: and when I cried to him he heard me.

25{21:26}With thee is my praise in a great church: I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him.

26{21:27}The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: their hearts shall live for ever and ever.

27{21:28}All the ends of the earth shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord: And all the kindreds of the Gentiles shall adore in his sight.

28{21:29}For the kingdom is the Lord's; and he shall have dominion over the nations.

29{21:30}All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him.

30{21:31}And to him my soul shall live: and my seed shall serve him.

31{21:32}There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.
