Psalms 102

The prophet in his prayer maketh a grievous complaint.

Psalms 102:1 {A prayer of the afflicted when he is ouerwhelmed, and powreth out his complaint before the LORD.} Heare my prayer, O LORD: and let my crie come vnto thee. Psalms 102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day [when] I am in trouble, incline thine eare vnto me: in the day [when] I call, answere mee speedily. Psalms 102:3 For my dayes are consumed like smoke: and my bones are burnt as an hearth. Psalms 102:4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grasse: so that I forget to eate my bread. Psalms 102:5 By reason of the voice of my groning, my bones cleaue to my skinne. Psalms 102:6 I am like a Pelican of the wildernes: I am like an owle of the desert. Psalms 102:7 I watch, and am as a sparowe alone vpon the house top. Psalms 102:8 Mine enemies reproch me all the day: [and] they that are mad against me, are sworne against me. Psalms 102:9 For I haue eaten ashes like bread: and mingled my drinke with weeping. Psalms 102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me vp, and cast me downe. Psalms 102:11 My dayes [are] like a shadow, [that] declineth: & I am withered like grasse.

He taketh comfort in the eternity and mercy of God.

Psalms 102:12 But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for euer: and thy remembrance vnto all generations. Psalms 102:13 Thou shalt arise, [and] haue mercie vpon Zion: for the time to fauour her, yea the set time is come. Psalms 102:14 For thy seruants take pleasure in her stones: and fauour the dust therof. Psalms 102:15 So the heathen shall feare the Name of the LORD: and all the kings of the earth thy glory. Psalms 102:16 When the LORD shall build vp Zion: he shall appeare in his glory. Psalms 102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

The mercies of God are to be recorded.

Psalms 102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created, shall praise the Lord. Psalms 102:19 For hee hath looked downe from the height of his Sanctuarie: from heauen did the LORD beholde the earth: Psalms 102:20 To heare the groning of the prisoner: to loose those that are appointed to death: Psalms 102:21 To declare the Name of the LORD in Zion: and his praise in Ierusalem: Psalms 102:22 When the people are gathered together: and the kingdomes to serue the LORD.

He sustaineth his weakness by the unchangeableness of God.

Psalms 102:23 He weakened my strength in the way: he shortened my dayes. Psalms 102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my dayes: thy yeres are throughout all generations. Psalms 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heauens [are] the worke of thy hands. Psalms 102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt indure, yea all of them shall waxe old like a garment: as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shalbe changed. Psalms 102:27 But thou [art] the same: and thy yeeres shall haue no end. Psalms 102:28 The children of thy seruants shal continue: and their seed shall be established before thee.
