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.

We might say that
this entire Psalm is about the crucifixion of Jesus.
Timothy Wayne George's Psalms Chapter 22 comment about verse 1 on 2/22/2013, 8:20am...
This messianic Psalm tells of the suffering of the Lord Jesus on the cross, as the Father is too holy to look upon our sin, so the Lord cries out my God, my God why have you forsaken me? Thank God that Jesus took our sin upon that tree, and endured the agony, the rejection, so that we could be liberated from the curse of sin. Jesus looked to the day when the government will be upon His shoulders, and all kindred shall come to worship before Him. Praise God He rejoiced to see His seed. One day every eye shall see, every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord to the glory of God. These are the scriptures that Jesus said to search, for they testify of Me.

Mark Diffin's Psalms Chapter 22 comment on 7/02/2012, 5:33am...
Can anybody tell me which Hebrew word translates to be 'pierced' in verse 16? I will tell you - none, because it is a complete mistranslation, just as the 'virgin' of Isaiah ch.7 v14. Why do they find it necessary to corrupt the Hebrew Scriptures?
David's Psalms Chapter 22 comment on 5/30/2012, 8:26am...
"This was a prophesy given to David by God concerning the crucifiction of Christ."
Either that or there was a nasty outbreak of Midrash among 1st century (CE) writers!
