[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Psa 102:1 Listen to my prayer, O LORD, and hear my cry for help!
Psa 102:2 When I am in trouble, don't turn away from me! Listen to me, and answer me quickly when I call!
Psa 102:3 My life is disappearing like smoke; my body is burning like fire.
Psa 102:4 I am beaten down like dry grass; I have lost my desire for food.
Psa 102:5 I groan aloud; I am nothing but skin and bones.
Psa 102:6 I am like a wild bird in the desert, like an owl in abandoned ruins.
Psa 102:7 I lie awake; I am like a lonely bird on a housetop.
Psa 102:8 All day long my enemies insult me; those who mock me use my name in cursing.
Psa 102:9 Because of your anger and fury, ashes are my food, and my tears are mixed with my drink. You picked me up and threw me away.
Psa 102:10 (SEE 102:9)
Psa 102:11 My life is like the evening shadows; I am like dry grass.
Psa 102:12 But you, O LORD, are king forever; all generations will remember you.
Psa 102:13 You will rise and take pity on Zion; the time has come to have mercy on her; this is the right time.
Psa 102:14 Your servants love her, even though she is destroyed; they have pity on her, even though she is in ruins.
Psa 102:15 The nations will fear the LORD; all the kings of the earth will fear his power.
Psa 102:16 When the LORD rebuilds Zion, he will reveal his greatness.
