Psalms 102:3-4


102:3 For my days go up in smoke, 1 

and my bones are charred like a fireplace. 2 

102:4 My heart is parched 3  and withered like grass,

for I am unable 4  to eat food. 5 

1 tn Heb “for my days come to an end in smoke.”

2 tn The Hebrew noun מוֹ־קֵד (mo-qed, “fireplace”) occurs only here, in Isa 33:14 (where it refers to the fire itself), and perhaps in Lev 6:2.

3 tn Heb “struck, attacked.”

4 tn Heb “I forget.”

5 sn I am unable to eat food. During his time of mourning, the psalmist refrained from eating. In the following verse he describes metaphorically the physical effects of fasting.
