King James Bible : Psalms : Chapter 102


102:1
Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.
102:2
Hide 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.
102:3
For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
102:4
My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
102:5
By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
102:6
I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
102:7
I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
102:8
Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
102:9
For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping.
102:10
Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
102:11
My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
102:12
But thou, O LORD, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
102:13
Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
102:14
For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
102:15
So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
102:16
When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
102:17
He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
102:18
This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
102:19
For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
102:20
To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
102:21
To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
102:22
When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
102:23
He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
102:24
I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.
102:25
Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
102:26
They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
102:27
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
102:28
The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
