Psalm 102 (WEBP)

[1] Hear my prayer, Yahweh! Let my cry come to you.
[2] Don’t hide your face from me in the day of my distress. Turn your ear to me. Answer me quickly in the day when I call.
[3] For my days consume away like smoke. My bones are burned as a torch.
[4] My heart is blighted like grass, and withered, for I forget to eat my bread.
[5] By reason of the voice of my groaning, my bones stick to my skin.
[6] I am like a pelican of the wilderness. I have become as an owl of the waste places.
[7] I watch, and have become like a sparrow that is alone on the housetop.
[8] My enemies reproach me all day. Those who are mad at me use my name as a curse.
[9] For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mixed my drink with tears,
[10] because of your indignation and your wrath; for you have taken me up and thrown me away.
[11] My days are like a long shadow. I have withered like grass.
[12] But you, Yahweh, will remain forever; your renown endures to all generations.
[13] You will arise and have mercy on Zion, for it is time to have pity on her. Yes, the set time has come.
[14] For your servants take pleasure in her stones, and have pity on her dust.
[15] So the nations will fear Yahweh’s name, all the kings of the earth your glory.
[16] For Yahweh has built up Zion. He has appeared in his glory.
[17] He has responded to the prayer of the destitute, and has not despised their prayer.
[18] This will be written for the generation to come. A people which will be created will praise Yah,
[19] for he has looked down from the height of his sanctuary. From heaven, Yahweh saw the earth,
[20] to hear the groans of the prisoner, to free those who are condemned to death,
[21] that men may declare Yahweh’s name in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem,
[22] when the peoples are gathered together, the kingdoms, to serve Yahweh.
[23] He weakened my strength along the course. He shortened my days.
[24] I said, “My God, don’t take me away in the middle of my days. Your years are throughout all generations.
[25] Of old, you laid the foundation of the earth. The heavens are the work of your hands.
[26] They will perish, but you will endure. Yes, all of them will wear out like a garment. You will change them like a cloak, and they will be changed.
[27] But you are the same. Your years will have no end.
[28] The children of your servants will continue. Their offspring will be established before you.”

Psalm 102 (KJVS)

[1] «A Prayer H8605 of the afflicted H6041, when he is overwhelmed H5848 (8799), and poureth out H8210 (8799) his complaint H7879 before H6440 the LORD H3068.» Hear H8085 (8798) my prayer H8605, O LORD H3068, and let my cry H7775 come H935 (8799) unto thee.
[2] Hide H5641 (8686) not thy face H6440 from me in the day H3117 [when] I am in trouble H6862; incline H5186 (8685) thine ear H241 unto me: in the day H3117 [when] I call H7121 (8799) answer H6030 (8798) me speedily H4118.
[3] For my days H3117 are consumed H3615 (8804) like smoke H6227, and my bones H6106 are burned H2787 (8738) as an hearth H4168.
[4] My heart H3820 is smitten H5221 (8717), and withered H3001 (8799) like grass H6212; so that I forget H7911 (8804) to eat H398 (8800) my bread H3899.
[5] By reason of the voice H6963 of my groaning H585 my bones H6106 cleave H1692 (8804) to my skin H1320.
[6] I am like H1819 (8804) a pelican H6893 of the wilderness H4057: I am like an owl H3563 of the desert H2723.
[7] I watch H8245 (8804), and am as a sparrow H6833 alone H909 (8802) upon the house top H1406.
[8] Mine enemies H341 (8802) reproach H2778 (8765) me all the day H3117; [and] they that are mad H1984 (8781) against me are sworn H7650 (8738) against me.
[9] For I have eaten H398 (8804) ashes H665 like bread H3899, and mingled H4537 (8804) my drink H8249 with weeping H1065,
[10] Because H6440 of thine indignation H2195 and thy wrath H7110: for thou hast lifted me up H5375 (8804), and cast me down H7993 (8686).
[11] My days H3117 [are] like a shadow H6738 that declineth H5186 (8803); and I am withered H3001 (8799) like grass H6212.
[12] But thou, O LORD H3068, shalt endure H3427 (8799) for ever H5769; and thy remembrance H2143 unto all H1755 generations H1755.
[13] Thou shalt arise H6965 (8799), [and] have mercy H7355 (8762) upon Zion H6726: for the time H6256 to favour H2603 (8800) her, yea, the set time H4150, is come H935 (8804).
[14] For thy servants H5650 take pleasure H7521 (8804) in her stones H68, and favour H2603 (8779) the dust H6083 thereof.
[15] So the heathen H1471 shall fear H3372 (8799) the name H8034 of the LORD H3068, and all the kings H4428 of the earth H776 thy glory H3519.
[16] When the LORD H3068 shall build up H1129 (8804) Zion H6726, he shall appear H7200 (8738) in his glory H3519.
[17] He will regard H6437 (8804) the prayer H8605 of the destitute H6199, and not despise H959 (8804) their prayer H8605.
[18] This shall be written H3789 (8735) for the generation H1755 to come H314: and the people H5971 which shall be created H1254 (8737) shall praise H1984 (8762) the LORD H3050.
[19] For he hath looked down H8259 (8689) from the height H4791 of his sanctuary H6944; from heaven H8064 did the LORD H3068 behold H5027 (8689) the earth H776;
[20] To hear H8085 (8800) the groaning H603 of the prisoner H615; to loose H6605 (8763) those that are appointed H1121 to death H8546;
[21] To declare H5608 (8763) the name H8034 of the LORD H3068 in Zion H6726, and his praise H8416 in Jerusalem H3389;
[22] When the people H5971 are gathered H6908 (8736) together H3162, and the kingdoms H4467, to serve H5647 (8800) the LORD H3068.
[23] He weakened H6031 (8765) my strength H3581 in the way H1870; he shortened H7114 (8765) my days H3117.
[24] I said H559 (8799), O my God H410, take me not away H5927 (8686) in the midst H2677 of my days H3117: thy years H8141 [are] throughout all H1755 generations H1755.
[25] Of old H6440 hast thou laid the foundation H3245 (8804) of the earth H776: and the heavens H8064 [are] the work H4639 of thy hands H3027.
[26] They shall perish H6 (8799), but thou shalt endure H5975 (8799): yea, all of them shall wax old H1086 (8799) like a garment H899; as a vesture H3830 shalt thou change H2498 (8686) them, and they shall be changed H2498 (8799):
[27] But thou [art] the same, and thy years H8141 shall have no end H8552 (8735).
[28] The children H1121 of thy servants H5650 shall continue H7931 (8799), and their seed H2233 shall be established H3559 (8735) before H6440 thee.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 102 (YLT)

[1] O Jehovah, hear my prayer, yea, my cry to Thee cometh.
[2] Hide not Thou Thy face from me, In a day of mine adversity, Incline unto me Thine ear, In the day I call, haste, answer me.
[3] For consumed in smoke have been my days, And my bones as a fire-brand have burned.
[4] Smitten as the herb, and withered, is my heart, For I have forgotten to eat my bread.
[5] From the voice of my sighing Hath my bone cleaved to my flesh.
[6] I have been like to a pelican of the wilderness, I have been as an owl of the dry places.
[7] I have watched, and I am As a bird alone on the roof.
[8] All the day mine enemies reproached me, Those mad at me have sworn against me.
[9] Because ashes as bread I have eaten, And my drink with weeping have mingled,
[10] From Thine indignation and Thy wrath, For Thou hast lifted me up, And dost cast me down.
[11] My days as a shadow are stretched out, And I-as the herb I am withered.
[12] And Thou, O Jehovah, to the age abidest, And Thy memorial to all generations.
[13] Thou-Thou risest-Thou pitiest Zion, For the time to favour her, For the appointed time hath come.
[14] For Thy servants have been pleased with her stones, And her dust they favour.
[15] And nations fear the name of Jehovah, And all kings of the earth Thine honour,
[16] For Jehovah hath builded Zion, He hath been seen in His honour,
[17] He turned unto the prayer of the destitute, And He hath not despised their prayer.
[18] This is written for a later generation, And the people created do praise Jah.
[19] For He hath looked From the high place of His sanctuary. Jehovah from heaven unto earth looked attentively,
[20] To hear the groan of the prisoner, To loose sons of death,
[21] To declare in Zion the name of Jehovah, And His praise in Jerusalem,
[22] In the peoples being gathered together, And the kingdoms-to serve Jehovah.
[23] He hath humbled in the way my power, He hath shortened my days.
[24] I say, ‘My God, take me not up in the midst of my days,’ Through all generations are Thine years.
[25] Beforetime the earth Thou didst found, And the work of Thy hands are the heavens.
[26] They-They perish, and Thou remainest, And all of them as a garment become old, As clothing Thou changest them, And they are changed.
[27] And Thou art the same, and Thine years are not finished.
[28] The sons of Thy servants do continue, And their seed before Thee is established!
