Psalms 22:23-24


22:23 You loyal followers of the Lord, 1  praise him!

All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!

All you descendants of Israel, stand in awe of him! 2 

22:24 For he did not despise or detest the suffering 3  of the oppressed; 4 

he did not ignore him; 5 

when he cried out to him, he responded. 6 

1 tn Heb “[you] fearers of the Lord.” See Ps 15:4.

2 tn Heb “fear him.”

3 tn Or “affliction”; or “need.”

4 sn In this verse the psalmist refers to himself in the third person and characterizes himself as oppressed.

5 tn Heb “he did not hide his face from him.” For other uses of the idiom “hide the face” meaning “ignore,” see Pss 10:11; 13:1; 51:9. Sometimes the idiom carries the stronger idea of “reject” (see Pss 27:9; 88:14).

6 tn Heb “heard.”
