Psalms 90 [Commentary] |
||A Prayer of Moses, the man of God. Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.
||Before the mountains were born
Or You gave birth to the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
||You turn man back into dust
And say, "Return, O children of men."
||For a thousand years in Your sight
Are like yesterday when it passes by,
Or as a watch in the night.
||You have swept them away like a flood, they fall asleep;
In the morning they are like grass which sprouts anew.
||In the morning it flourishes and sprouts anew;
Toward evening it fades and withers away.
||For we have been consumed by Your anger
And by Your wrath we have been dismayed.
||You have placed our iniquities before You,
Our secret sins in the light of Your presence.
||For all our days have declined in Your fury;
We have finished our years like a sigh.
||As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years,
Or if due to strength, eighty years,
Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow;
For soon it is gone and we fly away.
||Who understands the power of Your anger
And Your fury, according to the fear that is due You?
||So teach us to number our days,
That we may present to You a heart of wisdom.
||Do return, O LORD; how long will it be?
And be sorry for Your servants.
||O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness,
That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
||Make us glad according to the days You have afflicted us,
And the years we have seen evil.
||Let Your work appear to Your servants
And Your majesty to their children.
||Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us;
And confirm for us the work of our hands;
Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
