The LORD Numbers Our Days
To the director; to Jeduthun; an ode to David.1 I said, I shall guard my ways [2to not sin 1for me] with my tongue. I put [2for my mouth 1a guard] while the [2stood 1sinner] before me. 2 I was mute and humbled and quiet of good words, and my pain was renewed. 3 [2heated 1My heart] within me; and in my meditation [2would burn away 1a fire]; I spoke with my tongue. 4 Make known to me, O lord, my limit! and the number of my days, what it is, that I should know what I lack. 5 Behold, [2a palm 1you established] for my days; and my essence is as nothing before you. Furthermore, [4all things 5are folly 1for every 2man 3living]. 6 However, [3with 4an image 2travels 1a man], except, [2in folly 1he is disturbed]. He treasures up, but does not know why he shall gather them. 7 And now, what of my endurance -- is it not the lord? Even my support [2from 3you 1is]. 8 From all my lawless deeds rescue me! [3for scorn 4to the fool 1You gave 2me]. 9 I was made mute, and I did not open my mouth, for you did it. 10 Abstain [2from 3me 1your whips]; from the strength of your hand I failed. 11 With rebukes for lawlessness you corrected man; and [2wastes away 3as 4a spider's 1his life]; besides -- [3is folly 1every 2man]. PAUSE. 12 Hear my prayer, O lord, and my supplication! Give ear to my tears! Be not silent! for [3a sojourner 1I 2am] with you, and an immigrant, as all my fathers. 13 Spare me! that I shall refresh before my going forth, and should no longer in any way exist.
