God's years and man's days
A Prayer of the afflicted, Ps. 61:2when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the Lord.
Hear my prayer, O Lord,
And let my cry Ps. 18:6come unto thee.
Ps. 69:17Hide not thy face from me
In the day when I am in trouble; Ps. 71:2incline thine ear unto me:
In the day when I call answer me speedily.
Jas. 4:14For my days are consumed like smoke,
And Job 30:30;Ps. 31:10my bones are burnt as a hearth.
My heart is smitten, and Ps. 37:2withered like grass;
So that I forget to eat my bread.
By reason of the voice of my groaning Job 19:20my bones cleave to my skin.
Job 30:29I am like Is. 34:11a pelican of the wilderness:
I am like an owl of the desert.
I Ps. 77:4watch, and am as a sparrow Ps. 38:11alone upon the housetop.
Mine enemies reproach me all the day;
And they that are Acts 26:11mad against me are Acts 23:12sworn against me.
For I have eaten ashes like bread,
And Ps. 42:3mingled my drink with weeping,
Because of thine indignation and thy wrath:
For Ps. 30:7thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
Eccl. 6:12My days are like a shadow that declineth;
And Is. 40:6-8;Jas. 1:10I am withered like grass.
But Ps. 9:7thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever;
And Ps. 135:13thy remembrance unto all generations.
Thou shalt arise, and Is. 60:10have mercy upon Zion:
For the time to favour her, yea, the Is. 40:2set time, is come.
For thy servants take pleasure in Ps. 79:1her stones,
And favour the dust thereof.
So the heathen shall 1 Ki. 8:43fear the name of the Lord,
And all the kings of the earth thy glory.
When the Lord shall build up Zion,
Is. 60:1,2He shall appear in his glory.
Neh. 1:6He will regard the prayer of the destitute,
And not despise their prayer.
This shall be Rom. 15:4written for the generation to come:
And Ps. 22:31the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.
For he hath Deut. 26:15looked down from the height of his sanctuary;
From heaven did the Lord behold the earth;
Ps. 79:11To hear the groaning of the prisoner;
To loose those that are appointed to death;
To Ps. 22:22declare the name of the Lord in Zion,
And his praise in Jerusalem;
When the people are gathered together,
And the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.
He weakened my strength in the way;
He Job 21:21shortened my days.
Is. 38:10I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days:
Ps. 90:2Thy years are throughout all generations.
Heb. 1:10Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth:
And the heavens are the work of thy hands.
Is. 34:4They shall perish, but thou shalt endure:
Yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment;
As a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
But Mal. 3:6;Heb. 13:8thou art the same,
And thy years shall have no end.
Ps. 69:36The children of thy servants shall continue,
And their seed shall be established before thee.
The benefits of the Lord
