Example text

For your servants hold its stones dear, and have pity on its dust. The nations will fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth your glory. For the LORD will build up Zion; he will appear in his glory. He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and will not despise their prayer. Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet unborn may praise the LORD: that he looked down from his holy height, from heaven the LORD looked at the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners, to set free those who were doomed to die; so that the name of the LORD may be declared in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem, when peoples gather together, and kingdoms, to worship the LORD.

This indicates that the troubles included more than simply an illness.

Although there seems to be no evidence that they were originally one psalm, for purposes of this study we will treat the two psalms together.  We have this kind of "up and down" experience constantly in our own lives, and so in our study of these psalms we will explore how the psalmist lives on the roller coaster of life, and then is able to express gratitude and praise to God for it.  11).  God will build again from the ruins, and the people in exile shall return. Then Psalm 103 rushes in with praise and thanksgiving, as though the restoration and return have already happened.
