22:title Perhaps a musical term
Or My words of groaning are so far from delivering me
Lit separate with the lip
Or Rely on
Lit let Him
Lit was cast on You from the womb
Some Hb mss, LXX, Syr; other Hb mss read me; like a lion
Lit they
Lit my only one
Lit answered
Lit my praise
Lit Him
Or poor, or afflicted
