The prayer to Yahweh (Ps 22:19-22:21)

“But You!

Yahweh!

Do not be far away!

O my help!

Come quickly to my aid!

Deliver my soul from the sword!

Deliver my life from the power of the dog!

Save me from the mouth of the lion!”

David or the psalmist did not want Yahweh to be far away. He wanted him to help him by coming quickly to his aid. He wanted his soul and his life saved from the power of the sword and the dog. He wanted to be saved from the lion’s mouth.
