For my days vanish like smoke; my bones burn like glowing embers.
King James Bible

American Standard Version
For my days consume away like smoke, And my bones are burned as a firebrand.
Young's Literal Translation
For consumed in smoke have been my days, And my bones as a fire-brand have burned.
Psalm 102:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My days are consumed like smoke - He represents himself (for the psalmist speaks in the name of the people) under the notion of a pile of combustible matter, placed upon a fire, which soon consumes it; part flying away in smoke, and the residue lying on the hearth in the form of charred coal and ashes. The Chaldeans were the fire, and the captive Jews the fuel, thus converted into smoke and ashes.
