For the end, A Song of David, to Jeduthun.1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue; I set a guard on my mouth, while the sinner stood in my presence. 2 I was dumb, and humbled myself, and kept silence from good words; and my grief was renewed. 3 My heart grew hot within me, and a fire would kindle in my meditation; I spoke with my tongue, 4 O Lord, make me to know my end, and the number of my days, what it is; that I may know what I lack. 5 Behold, You have made my days old; and my existence is as nothing before You; indeed, every man living is altogether vanity. Pause. 6 Surely man walks in a shadow; nay, he is disquieted in vain; he lays up treasures, and knows not for whom he shall gather them. 7 And now what is my expectation? Is it not the Lord? And my ground of hope is with You. Pause. 8 Deliver me from all my transgressions; You have made me a reproach to the foolish. 9 I was dumb, and opened not my mouth; for You are He that made me. 10 Remove Your scourge from me; I have fainted by reason of the strength of Your hand. 11 You chasten man with rebukes for iniquity, and You make his life to consume away like a spider's web; nay, every man is disquieted in vain. Pause. 12 O Lord, hearken to my prayer and my supplication; attend to my tears; be not silent, for I am a sojourner in the land, and a stranger, as all my fathers were. 13 Spare me, that I may be refreshed, before I depart, and be no more.
