Recap Day 2

Sunday 13th March

Recap Day!


If you are new to my blog, then for the next few days things will be a little different, as we are learning Psalm 22, a poem about Easter, to raise money for Tearfund.

I will post an extract of the poem every day. Learn as much as you can… We are doing SO well, and have already learnt loads.

Do sign up to follow my blog if you want to join our mental marathon.

I am attempting to learn the poem in Hebrew.

A video clip as we try to learn the next time section. You can see regular updates on my Facebook page.

Psalm 22

Why Have You Forsaken Me?

A Psalm of David.
  My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning?
 O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer,
and by night, but I find no rest.
 Yet you are holy,
enthroned on the praises of Israel.
In you our fathers trusted;
they trusted, and you delivered them.
To you they cried and were rescued;
in you they trusted and were not put to shame.
 But I am a worm and not a man,
scorned by mankind and despised by the people.
All who see me mock me;
they make mouths at me; they wag their heads;
 “He trusts in the  Lord; let him deliver him;
let him rescue him, for he delights in him!”

 Yet you are he who took me from the womb;
you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts.

1לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל־אַיֶּלֶת הַשַּׁחַר מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִֽד׃

 אֵלִי אֵלִי לָמָה עֲזַבְתָּנִי רָחוֹק מִֽישׁוּעָתִי דִּבְרֵי שַׁאֲגָתִֽי׃

 אֱ‍ֽלֹהַי אֶקְרָא יוֹמָם  וְלֹא תַעֲנֶה וְלַיְלָה וְֽלֹא־דֽוּמִיָּה לִֽי׃

 וְאַתָּה קָדוֹשׁ יוֹשֵׁב תְּהִלּוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃

 בְּךָ בָּטְחוּ אֲבֹתֵינוּ בָּטְחוּ וַֽתְּפַלְּטֵֽמוֹ׃

 אֵלֶיךָ זָעֲקוּ וְנִמְלָטוּ בְּךָ בָטְחוּ וְלֹא־בֽוֹשׁוּ׃

 וְאָנֹכִי תוֹלַעַת וְלֹא־אִישׁ חֶרְפַּת אָדָם וּבְזוּי עָֽם׃

 כָּל־רֹאַי יַלְעִגוּ לִי יַפְטִירוּ בְשָׂפָה יָנִיעוּ רֹֽאשׁ׃

 גֹּל אֶל־יְהוָה יְפַלְּטֵהוּ יַצִּילֵהוּ כִּי חָפֵֽץ בּֽוֹ׃

10  כִּֽי־אַתָּה גֹחִי מִבָּטֶן מַבְטִיחִי עַל־שְׁדֵי אִמִּֽי׃




1 Dios mío, Dios mío,
¿por qué me has abandonado?

Lejos estás para salvarme,
lejos de mis palabras de lamento.

2 Dios mío, clamo de día y no me respondes;
clamo de noche y no hallo reposo.
3 Pero tú eres santo, tú eres rey,
¡tú eres la alabanza de Israel!

4 En ti confiaron nuestros padres;
confiaron, y tú los libraste;

5 a ti clamaron, y tú los salvaste;
se apoyaron en ti, y no los defraudaste.

6 Pero yo, gusano soy y no hombre;
la gente se burla de mí,
el pueblo me desprecia.

7 Cuantos me ven, se ríen de mí;
lanzan insultos, meneando la cabeza:

8 «Este confía en el  Señor,
¡pues que el  Señor lo ponga a salvo!
Ya que en él se deleita,
¡que sea él quien lo libre!»

9 Pero tú me sacaste del vientre materno;
me hiciste reposar confiado
en el regazo de mi madre.
