Psalm 102 RHE

1 (101-1) <The prayer of the poor man, when he was anxious, and poured out his supplication before the Lord.> (101-2) Hear, O Lord, my prayer: and let my cry come to thee.
2 (101-3) Turn not away thy face from me: in the day when I am in trouble, incline thy ear to me. In what day soever I shall call upon thee, hear me speedily.
3 (101-4) For my days are vanished like smoke, and my bones are grown dry like fuel for the fire.
4 (101-5) I am smitten as grass, and my heart is withered: because I forgot to eat my bread.
5 (101-6) Through the voice of my groaning, my bone hath cleaved to my flesh.
6 (101-7) I am become like to a pelican of the wilderness: I am like a night raven in the house.
7 (101-8) I have watched, and am become as a sparrow all alone on the housetop.
8 (101-9) All the day long my enemies reproached me: and they that praised me did swear against me.
9 (101-10) For I did eat ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping.
10 (101-11) Because of thy anger and indignation: for having lifted me up thou hast thrown me down.
11 (101-12) My days have declined like a shadow, and I am withered like grass.
12 (101-13) But thou, O Lord, endurest for ever: and thy memorial to all generations.
13 (101-14) Thou shalt arise and have mercy on Sion: for it is time to have mercy on it, for the time is come.
14 (101-15) For the stones thereof have pleased thy servants: and they shall have pity on the earth thereof.
15 (101-16) All the Gentiles shall fear thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
16 (101-17) For the Lord hath built up Sion: and he shall be seen in his glory.
17 (101-18) He hath had regard to the prayer of the humble: and he hath not despised their petition.
18 (101-19) Let these things be written unto another generation: and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord:
19 (101-20) Because he hath looked forth from his high sanctuary: from heaven the Lord hath looked upon the earth.
20 (101-21) That he might hear the groans of them that are in fetters: that he might release the children of the slain:
21 (101-22) That they may declare the name of the Lord in Sion: and his praise in Jerusalem;
22 (101-23) When the people assemble together, and kings, to serve the Lord.
23 (101-24) He answered him in the way of his strength: Declare unto me the fewness of my days.
24 (101-25) Call me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are unto generation and generation.
25 (101-26) In the beginning, O Lord, thou foundedst the earth: and the heavens are the works of thy hands.
26 (101-27) They shall perish but thou remainest: and all of them shall grow old like a garment: And as a vesture thou shalt change them, and they shall be changed.
27 (101-28) But thou art always the selfsame, and thy years shall not fail.
28 (101-29) The children of thy servants shall continue and their seed shall be directed for ever.
