Chapter 39

1

 

  {To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.} I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a muzzle, while the wicked is before me.  

 

 


2

 

  I was dumb with silence, I held my peace from good; and my sorrow was stirred.  

 

 


3

 

  My heart burned within me; the fire was kindled in my musing: I spoke with my tongue,  

 

 


4

 

  Make me to know, Jehovah, mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: I shall know how frail I am.  

 

 


5

 

  Behold, thou hast made my days [as] hand-breadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before thee; verily, every man, [even] the high placed, is altogether vanity. Selah.  

 

 


6

 

  Verily, man walketh in a vain show; verily they are disquieted in vain; he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them.  

 

 


7

 

  And now, what wait I for, Lord? my hope is in thee.  

 

 


8

 

  Deliver me from all my transgressions; make me not the reproach of the foolish.  

 

 


9

 

  I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; for thou hast done [it].  

 

 


10

 

  Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thy hand.  

 

 


11

 

  When thou with rebukes dost correct a man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely, every man is vanity. Selah.  

 

 


12

 

  Hear my prayer, Jehovah, and give ear unto my cry; be not silent at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, a sojourner, like all my fathers.  

 

 


13

 

  Look away from me, and let me recover strength, before I go hence and be no more.
