Why does the spelling look unusual?
[To the chiefe Musician vpon Aijeleth Shahar. A Psalme of Dauid.] My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken mee? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
O my God, I crie in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel!
Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliuer them.
They cryed vnto thee, and were deliuered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
But I am a worme, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
All they that see me, laugh me to scorne: they shoote out the lippe, they shake the head, saying,
He trusted on the Lord, that he would deliuer him: let him deliuer him, seeing he delighted in him.
But thou art hee that tooke mee out of the wombe; thou didst make me hope, when I was vpon my mothers breasts.
I was cast vpon thee from the wombe: thou art my God from my mothers belly.
Be not farre from me, for trouble is neere; for there is none to helpe.
Many bulles haue compassed me: strong bulles of Bashan haue beset me round.
They gaped vpon me with their mouthes, as a rauening and a roaring Lyon.
I am powred out like water, and all my bones are out of ioynt: my heart is like waxe, it is melted in the middest of my bowels.
My strength is dried vp like a potsheard: and my tongue cleaueth to my iawes; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
For dogges haue compassed me: the assembly of the wicked haue inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feete.
I may tell all my bones: they looke and stare vpon me.
They part my garments among them, and cast lots vpon my vesture.
But be not thou farre from mee, O Lord; O my strength, hast thee to helpe me.
Deliuer my soule from the sword: my darling from the power of the dogge.
Saue me from the lyons mouth: for thou hast heard me from the hornes of the vnicornes.
I will declare thy name vnto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Yee that feare the Lord, praise him; all yee the seede of Iacob glorifie him, and feare him all yee the seede of Israel.
For he hath not despised, nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him, but when he cried vnto him, he heard.
My praise shalbe of thee, in the great congregation: I will pay my vowes, before them that feare him.
The meeke shall eate and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seeke him; your heart shall liue for euer.
All the ends of the world shall remember, and turne vnto the Lord: and all the kinreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
For the kingdome is the Lords: and he is the gouernour among the nations.
All they that be fat vpon earth shall eate and worship: all they that goe downe to the dust shall bow before him, and none can keepe aliue his owne soule.
A seed shall serue him; it shalbe accounted to the Lord for a generation.
They shall come, and shall declare his righteousnes vnto a people that shalbe borne, that he hath done this.

How do we know that this Psalm prophesies the coming of Jesus? Rather, it puts the cry of a person who has walked in the way of the Lord into poetry of such beauty and passion that God could not fail to harken to his servant.
Timothy Wayne George's Psalms Chapter 22 comment about verse 31 on 2/22/2014, 6:17am...
This is a messianic Psalm about the Lord Jesus Christ and His suffering on the Cross that will be told to future generations for their deliverance As the woman poured her jar of perfume on the Lord Jesus Christ He said this shall be a memorial of my death burial and resurrection where ever this gospel shall be preached all over the world Praise God as we look forward to His coming to redeem His church let us be found without spot or blemish at His coming

What was David's intentions toward the nations
Carol Tanner's Psalms Chapter 22 comment about verse 24 on 1/08/2014, 11:43pm...
"...affliction of the afflicted" gave me the impression that this phrase referred to many people, or any number of people, or everyone at one time or another.
BUT THEN, the next phrase states, "nor has He hidden His face from HIM, but when he cried to Him for help, He heard." So the "afflicted" is an individual rather than many people.
This describes Jesus' experience on the cross.
However, the Jewish Publication Bible Society Psalm 22:25, seems to say something different when speaking of "the poor."
Is this a translation difference or conflict?
And why is it verse 25 rather than 24?
Wesley's notes are rich with compassion

IT SHOWS ABUNDANCE OF GOD'S GRACE AND POWER DURING TRIAL TIMES,I THANK GOD FOR HIS LIVING WORD.
KatieBird's Psalms Chapter 22 comment on 11/21/2013, 4:41pm...
This Psalm is a very chilling reminder to all Christians that,as David was able to prophecy about the crucifixion of Jesus,we MUST all realize that the Bible is truly the inspired word of GOD and that we all should prepare ye the way of The Lord at his second coming by being righteous with GOD.... Amen.

Future events of Christ crucifixion is shown here in the bible. In the bible, God has also shown us what we will have to endure while living in a fallen world. I thank God for His WORD!!!!!
