I Will Watch My Ways1 For the choirmaster. For Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. I said, “I will watch my ways so that I will not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth with a muzzle as long as the wicked are present.” 2 I was speechless and still; I held my peace, [even] from good, and my sorrow was stirred. 3 My heart grew hot within me; as I mused, the fire burned. [Then] I spoke with my tongue: 4 “Show me, O LORD, my end and the measure of my days. Let me know how fleeting my life is. 5 You, indeed, have made my days [as] handbreadths, and my lifetime as nothing before You. Truly each man at his best exists as but a breath. Selah 6 Surely every man goes about like a phantom; surely he bustles in vain; he heaps up [riches] not knowing who will haul them away. 7 Now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in You. 8 Deliver me from all my transgressions; do not make me the reproach of fools. 9 I have become mute; I do not open my mouth because it is You who have done it. 10 Remove Your scourge from me; I am perishing by the force of Your hand. 11 You discipline and correct a man for his iniquity, consuming like a moth what he holds dear; surely each man [is] but a vapor. Selah 12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping. For I am a foreigner dwelling with You, a sojourner like all my fathers. 13 Turn Your gaze away from me, that I may again be cheered before I depart and am no more.”
