Psalms 102

The prophet in his prayer maketh a grievous complaint.

Psalms 102:1 {A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before Jehovah.} Jehovah, hear my prayer, and let my cry come unto thee. Psalms 102:2 Hide not thy face from me: in the day of my trouble, incline thine ear unto me; in the day I call, answer me speedily. Psalms 102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as a firebrand. Psalms 102:4 My heart is smitten and withered like grass; yea, I have forgotten to eat my bread. Psalms 102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning, my bones cleave to my flesh. Psalms 102:6 I am become like the pelican of the wilderness, I am as an owl in desolate places; Psalms 102:7 I watch, and am like a sparrow alone upon the housetop. Psalms 102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; they that are mad against me swear by me. Psalms 102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping, Psalms 102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath; for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down. Psalms 102:11 My days are like a lengthened-out shadow, and I, I am withered like grass.

He taketh comfort in the eternity and mercy of God.

Psalms 102:12 But thou, Jehovah, abidest for ever, and thy memorial from generation to generation. Psalms 102:13 *Thou* wilt rise up, thou wilt have mercy upon Zion: for it is the time to be gracious to her, for the set time is come. Psalms 102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour her dust. Psalms 102:15 And the nations shall fear the name of Jehovah, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. Psalms 102:16 When Jehovah shall build up Zion, he will appear in his glory. Psalms 102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute one, 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 a people that shall be created shall praise Jah: Psalms 102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from the heavens hath Jehovah beheld the earth, Psalms 102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner, to loose those that are appointed to die; Psalms 102:21 That the name of Jehovah may be declared in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem, Psalms 102:22 When the peoples shall be gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve Jehovah.

He sustaineth his weakness by the unchangeableness of God.

Psalms 102:23 He weakened my strength in the way, he shortened my days. Psalms 102:24 I said, My *God, take me not away in the midst of my days! ... Thy years are from generation to generation. Psalms 102:25 Of old hast thou founded the earth, and the heavens are the work of thy hands: Psalms 102:26 *They* shall perish, but *thou* continuest; and all of them shall grow old as a garment: as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed. Psalms 102:27 But thou art the Same, and thy years shall have no end. Psalms 102:28 The children of thy servants shall abide, and their seed shall be established before thee.
