Psalm 102:6 (a) This bird represents the Lord JESUS in His solitude and loneliness. As the owl was surrounded by the barren, hot sands with only reptiles for company, so the Saviour was surrounded by wicked influences and evil enemies. As the owl had no trees in which to make its nest, and rest there, so the Saviour had no place to lay His head, and no resting place for His heart in this life.
