Psalm 102
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1HEAR my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.

2Turn not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me; in the day when I call, answer me speedily.

3For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are whitened as if they were burned.

4My heart is smitten and withered like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread.

5Because of the voice of my groaning, my bones cleave to my skin.

6I am like a pelican of the wilderness; I am like an owl of the desert.

7I am shaken and alone like a sparrow upon the house tops.

8Mine enemies reproach me all the day; those who once praised me are now sworn against me.

9I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,

10Because of thine indignation and thy wrath; for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.

11My days are like a shadow that declines; and I am withered like grass.

12But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever, and thy remembrance to all generations.

13Arise and have mercy upon Zion; for it is time to have mercy upon her.

14For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favor the dust thereof.

15So the heathen shall worship the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

16When the LORD builds up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

17He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

18This shall be written for the generation to come; and the people who shall be created shall praise the LORD.

19For he has looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth,

20To hear the groaning of the prisoner, to loose those that are appointed to death,

21To declare the name of the LORD in Zion and his praises in Jerusalem,

22When the peoples are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.

23For they have weakened my strength on earth; they warned me of the shortage of my days.

24O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days; thy years are throughout all generations.

25Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

26They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture, they shall fade.

27But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

28The children of thy servants shall continue and their descendants shall be established before thee.
