10/30/19: Hebrews 1:1-14; Psalm 102:1-28; Proverbs 26:21-22
In my Bible the heading to Psalm 102 states that this is a “prayer of an afflicted person who has grown weak and pours out a lament to God.” And we see in Psalm 102 the ultimate realization of the writer — that even though they may be weakened and “afflicted” they shall always have the eternal strength of the Lord as a promise:
Psalm 102: So I said: “Do not take me away, my God, in the midst of my days;
your years go on through all generations.
25 In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
26 They will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.
Like clothing you will change them
and they will be discarded.
27 But you remain the same,
and your years will never end.
28 The children of your servants will live in your presence;
their descendants will be established before you.”
And, like me, maybe you found it interesting that the writer of Hebrews quoted this passage when explaining the superiority of His Son.
Hebrews 1: 10 He also says, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. 11 They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. 12 You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.”
