New International Version
My days are like the evening shadow; I wither away like grass.
King James Bible
My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
Darby Bible Translation
My days are like a lengthened-out shadow, and I, I am withered like grass.
World English Bible
My days are like a long shadow. I have withered like grass.
Young's Literal Translation
My days as a shadow are stretched out, And I -- as the herb I am withered.
Psalm 102:11 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My days are like a shadow that declineth - Or rather, My days decline like the shadow. I have passed my meridian, and the sun of my prosperity is about to set for ever. There may be here an allusion to the declination of the sun towards the south, which, by shortening their days, would greatly lengthen their nights. Similar to the exclamation of a contemporary prophet, Jeremiah 8:20 : "The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved." There is now scarcely any human hope of our deliverance.
