God’s Eternity and Man’s Transitoriness.1 Lord, You have been our ▼
▼ Or hiding place; some ancient mss read place of refuge, c dwelling place in all generations.
2 Before d the mountains were born
▼ Or AndOr You f gave birth to the earth and the world,
Even g from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
3 You h turn man back into dust
And say, “Return, O children of men.”
4 For i a thousand years in Your sight
Are like j yesterday when it passes by,
▼ Or AndOr as a l watch in the night.
5 You m have ▼
▼ Or floodedswept them away like a flood, they ▼
▼ Lit become asleep, p fall asleep;
In the morning they are like q grass which ▼
▼ Or passes awaysprouts anew.
6 In the morning it s flourishes and ▼
▼ Or passes awaysprouts anew;
Toward evening it u fades and v withers away.
7 For we have been w consumed by Your anger
And by Your wrath we have been ▼
▼ Or terrifieddismayed.
8 You have y placed our iniquities before You,
Our z secret sins in the light of Your presence.
9 For aa all our days have declined in Your fury;
We have finished our years like a ▼
▼ Or whispersigh.
10 As for the days of our ▼
▼ Lit yearslife ▼
▼ Lit in them arethey contain seventy years,
Or if due to strength ae eighty years,
Yet their pride is but af labor and sorrow;
For soon it is gone and we ag fly away.
11 Who ▼
▼ Or knowsunderstands the ai power of Your anger
And Your fury, according to the aj fear ▼
▼ Lit of Youthat is due You?
12 So al teach us to number our days,
That we may ▼
▼ Or gain, bring in, an present to You a heart of wisdom.
13 Do ao return, O Lord; ap how long will it be?
▼ Or repent in regard tobe ar sorry for Your servants.
14 O as satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness,
That we may at sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 au Make us glad ▼
▼ Or as many days asaccording to the days You have afflicted us,
And the aw years we have seen ▼
▼ Or troubleevil.
16 Let Your ay work appear to Your servants
And Your az majesty ▼
▼ Or uponto their children.
17 Let the bb favor of the Lord our God be upon us;
▼ Or give permanence to, bd confirm for us the work of our hands;
▼ Or give permanence toconfirm the work of our hands.
