Psalm 22:15-17 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

15 My mouth is dried up like a piece of broken pottery.
    My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth.
    You bring me down to the edge of the grave.
16 A group of sinful people has closed in on me.
    They are all around me like a pack of dogs.
    They have pierced my hands and my feet.
17 Everyone can see all my bones right through my skin.
    People stare at me. They laugh when I suffer.

15 My mouth[a] is dried up like a potsherd,
    and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;
    you lay me in the dust of death.

16 Dogs surround me,
    a pack of villains encircles me;
    they pierce[b] my hands and my feet.
17 All my bones are on display;
    people stare and gloat over me.
