Psalms 102:11


102:11 My days are coming to an end, 1 

and I am withered like grass.

Psalms 102:23-24


102:23 He has taken away my strength in the middle of life; 2 

he has cut short my days.

102:24 I say, “O my God, please do not take me away in the middle of my life! 3 

You endure through all generations. 4 

1 tn Heb “my days [are] like an extended [or “lengthening”] shadow,” that is, like a late afternoon shadow made by the descending sun that will soon be swallowed up by complete darkness.

2 tn Heb “he has afflicted my strength in the way.” The term “way” refers here to the course of the psalmist’s life, which appears to be ending prematurely (vv. 23b-24).

3 tn Heb “do not lift me up in the middle of my days.”

4 tn Heb “in a generation of generations [are] your years.”
