Psalms 102

Introduction

Overview

Psalms 102:1, The prophet in his prayer makes a grievous complaint; Psalms 102:12, He takes comfort in the eternity, and mercy of God; Psalms 102:18, The mercies of God are to be recorded; Psalms 102:23, He sustains his weakness by the unchangeableness of God.

This psalm was evidently composed towards the close of the Babylonian captivity; and probably by the prophet Daniel.
