1 aHear my prayer, O Lord,
2 dHide not thy face from me
And kmy bones are burned as an hearth.
4 My heart is smitten, and lwithered like grass;
llSo that I forget to eat my bread.
6 I am like a npelican of the wilderness:
I am like an oowl of the desert.
7 I pwatch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
And smingled my drink with weeping,
And I am lwithered like grass.
12 But zthou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever;
13 Thou shalt arise, and chave mercy upon Zion:
For the time to favour her, yea, the dset time, is come.
14 For thy servants take pleasure in eher stones,
And favour fthe dust thereof.
15 So the heathen shall gfear the name of the Lord,
And hall the kings of the earth thy glory.
16 When ithe Lord shall build up Zion,
He jshall appear in his glory.
And not despise their prayer.
19 For he hath qlooked down from the height of his sanctuary;
rFrom heaven did the Lord behold the earth;
20 To hear sthe groaning of the prisoner;
To loose †those that are appointed to death;
21 To tdeclare the name of the Lord in Zion,
And his praise in Jerusalem;
And uthe kingdoms, to serve the Lord.
23 He †weakened my strength in the way;
xHe shortened my days.
25 dOf old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth:
And the heavens are the work of thy hands.
Yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment;
As a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
27 But gthou art the same,
And thy years shall have no end.
