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.”

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!
