Psalms 102

The prophet in his prayer maketh a grievous complaint.

Psalms 102:1 {A prayer of the afflicted, when hee shall be in distresse, and poure foorth his meditation before the Lorde.} O Lorde, heare my prayer, and let my crye come vnto thee. Psalms 102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble: incline thine eares vnto me: when I call, make haste to heare me. Psalms 102:3 For my dayes are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burnt like an herthe. Psalms 102:4 Mine heart is smitten and withereth like grasse, because I forgate to eate my bread. Psalms 102:5 For the voyce of my groning my bones doe cleaue to my skinne. Psalms 102:6 I am like a pelicane of the wildernesse: I am like an owle of the deserts. Psalms 102:7 I watch and am as a sparrowe alone vpon the house top. Psalms 102:8 Mine enemies reuile me dayly, and they that rage against me, haue sworne against me. Psalms 102:9 Surely I haue eaten asshes as bread, and mingled my drinke with weeping, Psalms 102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast heaued me vp, and cast me downe. Psalms 102:11 My dayes are like a shadowe that fadeth, and I am withered like grasse.

He taketh comfort in the eternity and mercy of God.

Psalms 102:12 But thou, O Lorde, doest remaine for euer, and thy remembrance from generation to generation. Psalms 102:13 Thou wilt arise & haue mercy vpon Zion: for the time to haue mercie thereon, for the appointed time is come. Psalms 102:14 For thy seruants delite in the stones thereof, and haue pitie on the dust thereof. Psalms 102:15 Then the heathen shall feare the Name of the Lord, and all the Kings of the earth thy glory, Psalms 102:16 When the Lorde shall build vp Zion, and shall appeare in his glory, Psalms 102:17 And shall turne vnto the prayer of the desolate, 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 shalbe created, shall prayse the Lord. Psalms 102:19 For he hath looked downe from the height of his Sanctuarie: out of the heauen did the Lord beholde the earth, Psalms 102:20 That he might heare the mourning of the prisoner, and deliuer the children of death: Psalms 102:21 That they may declare the Name of the Lord in Zion, and his prayse in Ierusalem, Psalms 102:22 When the people shalbe gathered together, and the kingdomes to serue the Lorde.

He sustaineth his weakness by the unchangeableness of God.

Psalms 102:23 He abated my strength in the way, and shortened my dayes. Psalms 102:24 And I sayd, O my God, take me not away in the middes of my dayes: thy yeeres endure from generation to generation. Psalms 102:25 Thou hast aforetime layde the foundation of the earth, and the heauens are the worke of thine hands. Psalms 102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: euen they all shall waxe olde as doeth a garment: as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed. Psalms 102:27 But thou art the same, and thy yeeres shall not fayle. Psalms 102:28 The children of thy seruants shall continue, and their seede shall stand fast in thy sight.
