Psalms 102

The prophet in his prayer maketh a grievous complaint.

Psalms 102:1 {A prayer of the afflicted when he was ouerwhelmed, and when he did powre out his petition before the face of God.} Heare my prayer O God: and let my crying come in vnto thee. Psalms 102:2 Hyde not thy face from me in the day of my distresse: encline thine eare vnto me, heare me spedyly in the day that I call. Psalms 102:3 For my dayes are consumed away like smoke: and my bones are burnt vp as though they were a firebrande. Psalms 102:4 My heart is smitten downe and wythered lyke grasse: because I did forget to eate my bread. Psalms 102:5 Through the noyse of my gronyng: my bones wyll scase cleaue to my fleshe. Psalms 102:6 I am become lyke a Pellicane of the wildernesse, and like an Owle that is in the desert: Psalms 102:7 I watch, and am as it were a sparrowe that sitteth alone vpon the house toppe. Psalms 102:8 Myne enemies reuile me all the day long: and they that are in a rage against me, make their oth by me. Psalms 102:9 For I haue eaten asshes as it were bread, and mingled my drynke with weepyng, Psalms 102:10 because of thine indignation and wrath: for thou hast set me vp, and cast me downe. Psalms 102:11 My dayes fade away lyke a shadowe: and I am wythered lyke grasse.

He taketh comfort in the eternity and mercy of God.

Psalms 102:12 But thou O God endurest for euer: and thy remembraunce throughout all generations. Psalms 102:13 Thou wylt aryse vp, thou wylt haue compassion vpon Sion: for it is tyme that thou haue mercie vpon her, for the tyme appoynted is come. Psalms 102:14 For thy seruauntes be well affected towarde her stones: and it pitieth them to see her in the dust. Psalms 102:15 And the heathen wyll feare thy name O God: and all the kynges of the earth thy glorious maiestie. Psalms 102:16 For God wyll buylde vp Sion: to be seene in his glorious maiestie. Psalms 102:17 He wyll regarde the prayer of the humble destitute of all helpe: and he wyll not dispise their prayer.

The mercies of God are to be recorded.

Psalms 102:18 This shalbe written for those that come after: and the people which shalbe borne, shall prayse the Lorde. Psalms 102:19 For he hath loked downe from his high sanctuarie: out of heauen did God beholde the earth. Psalms 102:20 That he might heare the mourninges of such as be in captiuitie: and delyuer the children of death. Psalms 102:21 That they may declare the name of God in Sion: and his prayse at Hierusalem. Psalms 102:22 When people were gathered together, & kyngdomes to serue God:

He sustaineth his weakness by the unchangeableness of God.

Psalms 102:23 he afflicted my strength in the way, he shortened my dayes. Psalms 102:24 But I say, O my God take me not away in the middest of myne age: as for thy yeres, they endure throughout all generations. Psalms 102:25 Thou hast before tyme layde the foundation of the earth: and the heauens are the worke of thy handes. Psalms 102:26 They shall perishe, but thou wylt remayne styll: they all shall waxe olde as doth a garment, and as a vesture thou wylt chaunge them, and they shalbe chaunged. Psalms 102:27 But thou art, and thy yeres can not fayle: Psalms 102:28 the children of thy seruauntes shal dwell, and their seede shalbe maynteyned in thy syght.
