I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels (22:14)

My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death (22:15)

For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet (22:16)

I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me (22:17)
