The personal lament (Ps 102:23-102:24)

“He has broken my strength in mid-course.

He has shortened my days.

‘O my God!’

I say.

‘Do not take me away,

At the midpoint of my life!

Your years endure

Throughout all generations!”

The psalmist claims that his strength has been broken in mid-life. His days have been shortened. He asked God not to take away his life that was only half lived. He wanted his years to endure just as God has endured from generation to generation.
