102:2 \102:1\ Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.
102:3 \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.
102:4 \102:3\For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
102:5 \102:4\My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
102:6 \102:5\By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
102:7 \102:6\I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
102:8 \102:7\I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
102:9 \102:8\Mine enemies reproach me all the day; [and] they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
102:10 \102:9\For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,
102:11 \102:10\Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
102:12 \102:11\My days [are] like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
102:13 \102:12\But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
102:14 \102:13\Thou shalt arise, [and] have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
102:15 \102:14\For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
102:16 \102:15\So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
102:17 \102:16\When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
102:18 \102:17\He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
102:19 \102:18\This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
102:20 \102:19\For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
102:21 \102:20\To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
102:22 \102:21\To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
102:23 \102:22\When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
102:24 \102:23\He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
102:25 \102:24\I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years [are] throughout all generations.
102:26 \102:25\Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens [are] the work of thy hands.
102:27 \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:
102:28 \102:27\But thou [art] the same, and thy years shall have no end.
102:29 \102:28\The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
