Psalms 102

The prophet in his prayer maketh a grievous complaint.

Psalms 102:1 {A prayer of the afflycte, when he was in woo, and powered oute hys complaynte before the Lord.} Heare my prayer, O Lord, & and lette my crienge come vnto the. Psalms 102:2 Hyde not thy face fro me in the tyme of my trouble encline thyne eares vnto me when I call, O heare me, and that ryghte sone. Psalms 102:3 For my dayes are consumed awaye lyke smoke, and my bones are brent vp as it were a fyre brande. Psalms 102:4 My herte smytten doune and wythered lyke grasse, so that I forgette too eate my bread. Psalms 102:5 For the voyce of my gronynge, my bone wil scarse cleue to my flesh. Psalms 102:6 I am be come lyke a Pellicane in þe wildernes, and lyke an owle in a broken wal. Psalms 102:7 I wake, and am euen as it were a sparow sittinge alone vpon the house toppe. Psalms 102:8 Myne enemyes reuyle me all the daye longe, they laugh me to scorne, & are sworne together agaynst me. Psalms 102:9 I eate ashes with my bread, and myngle my drynke with wepynge. Psalms 102:10 And that because of thyne indignacion & wrath, for thou hast taken me vp, and caste me awaye. Psalms 102:11 My dayes are gone 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 Lord, endurest for euer, and thy remembraunce thorow out all generacyons. Psalms 102:13 Aryse therfore & haue mercy vpon Sion, for it is time to haue mercy vpon her, yea, þe tyme is come. Psalms 102:14 And why? thy seruauntes haue a loue too her stones, and it pitieth them to se her in the dust. Psalms 102:15 The Heathen shal feare thy name, O Lord, and all the kynges of the earth thy maiesty. Psalms 102:16 For the Lorde shall buylde vp Sion, and shall apeare in hys glory. Psalms 102:17 He turneth him vnto the prayer of the poore destitute, & despiseth not their desyre.

The mercies of God are to be recorded.

Psalms 102:18 This shalbe wrytten for those that come after, that the people whiche shalbe borne, maye prayse the Lorde. Psalms 102:19 For he loketh doune from hys Sanctuary, out of the heauen doth the Lorde beholde the earth. Psalms 102:20 That he maye heare the mournynges of such as be in captiuitie, and deliuer the chyldren of death. Psalms 102:21 That they maye preache the name of the Lorde in Sion, and his worshippe at Hierusalem. Psalms 102:22 When the people are gathered together, & the kyngdomes also to serue the Lord.

He sustaineth his weakness by the unchangeableness of God.

Psalms 102:23 He hath brought doune my strength in my iourney, and shortened my dayes. Psalms 102:24 Yet will I saye: O my God, take me not away in the myddest of myne age: as for thy yeares, they endure thorowe out all generacions. Psalms 102:25 Thou Lorde in the beginnyng hast layed the foundacion of the earth, and the heauens are the workes of thy handes. Psalms 102:26 They shal perish, but thou shalt endure: they all shall wexe olde as doth a garment, & as a vesture shalt thou chaunge them, & they shalbe chaunged. Psalms 102:27 But thou art the same, & thy yeares shall not fayle. Psalms 102:28 The chyldren of thy seruauntes shall continue, and their sede shall prospere in thy sighte.
