Book of Psalms
Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto
102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am
in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day
when I call answer me speedily.
102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my
bones are burned as an hearth.
102:4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass;
so that I forget to eat my bread.
102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones
cleave to my skin.
102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am
like an owl of the desert.
102:7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the
102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they
that are mad against me are sworn against 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 lifted me up, and cast me down.
102:11 My days are like a shadow that declineth; and
I am withered like grass.
102:12 But thou, O LORD, shall endure for ever; and
thy remembrance unto all generations.
102:13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion:
for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is
102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones,
and favour the dust thereof.
102:15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the
LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
102:16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall
appear in his glory.
102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute,
and not despise their prayer.
102:18 This shall be written for the generation to
come: and the people which shall be created shall
praise the LORD.
102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of
his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the
102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to
loose those that are appointed to death;
102:21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and
his praise in Jerusalem;
102:22 When the people are gathered together, and
the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
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
102:25 Of old hast thou laid 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
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.
