Psalm 102

102:1 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah, And let my cry come unto thee. 102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day of my distress: Incline thine ear unto me; In the day when I call answer me speedily. 102:3 For my days consume away like smoke, And my bones are burned as a firebrand. 102:4 My heart is smitten like grass, and withered; For I forget to eat my bread. 102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning My bones cleave to my flesh. 102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness; I am become as an owl of the waste places. 102:7 I watch, and am become like a sparrow That is alone upon the house-top. 102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; They that are mad against me do curse by me. 102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, And mingled my drink with weeping, 102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: For thou hast taken me up, and cast me away. 102:11 My days are like a shadow that declineth; And I am withered like grass. 102:12 But thou, O Jehovah, wilt abide for ever; And thy memorial [name] unto all generations. 102:13 Thou wilt arise, and have mercy upon Zion; For it is time to have pity upon her, Yea, the set time is come. 102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, And have pity upon her dust. 102:15 So the nations shall fear the name of Jehovah, And all the kings of the earth thy glory. 102:16 For Jehovah hath built up Zion; He hath appeared in his glory. 102:17 He hath regarded the prayer of the destitute, And hath not despised their prayer. 102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come; And a people which shall be created shall praise Jehovah. 102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; From heaven did Jehovah behold the earth; 102:20 To hear the sighing of the prisoner; To loose those that are appointed to death; 102:21 That men may declare the name of Jehovah in Zion, And his praise in Jerusalem; 102:22 When the peoples are gathered together, And the kingdoms, to serve Jehovah. 102:23 He weakened my strength in the way; He shortened my days. 102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: Thy years are throughout all generations. 102:25 Of old didst thou lay the foundation of the earth; And the heavens are the work of thy hands. 102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; Yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; As a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: 102:27 But thou art the same, And thy years shall have no end. 102:28 The children of thy servants shall continue, And their seed shall be established before thee.
