1 6am become like a pelican in the wilderness and like an owl that is in the desert.

7 I have watched, and am even as it were a sparrow that sitteth alone upon the house-top.

22 When the people are gathered together: and the kingdoms also, to serve the Lord.

23 He brought down my strength in my journey and shortened my days.

24 But I said, O my God, take me not
