A Prisoner’s Groan

This will be written for a later generation,

And a newly created people will praise the Lord:

He looked down from His holy heights –

The Lord gazed out from heaven to earth –

To hear a prisoner’s groaning,

To set free those condemned to die,

So that they might declare

The name of Yahweh in Zion

And His praise in Jerusalem,

When peoples and kingdoms are assembled

To serve the Lord.

– Psalm 102:18-22
