Psalms Scripture Reading - Psalm 102:3-11

Psalm 102:3-11 English Standard Version

3 For my days pass away like smoke,

    and my bones burn like a furnace.

4 My heart is struck down like grass and has withered;

    I forget to eat my bread.

5 Because of my loud groaning

    my bones cling to my flesh.

6 I am like a desert owl of the wilderness,

    like an owl of the waste places;

7 I lie awake;

    I am like a lonely sparrow on the housetop.

8 All the day my enemies taunt me;

    those who deride me use my name for a curse.

9 For I eat ashes like bread

    and mingle tears with my drink,

10 because of your indignation and anger;

    for you have taken me up and thrown me down.

11 My days are like an evening shadow;

    I wither away like grass.
