1Lord, You have been our a1dwellingplace in allgenerations.
2Before2the mountains were bornbOr You 3gavebirth to the earth and the world, Even 4from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
You 5turnmanback into dust And say, "Return, O children of men."
For 6a thousandyears in Your sight Are like 7yesterdaywhen it passes by, cOr as a 8watch in the night.
You 9have dswept them awaylike a flood, they e10fallasleep ; In the morning they are like 11grass which fsproutsanew.
In the morning it 12flourishes and gsproutsanew ; Toward evening it 13fades and 14withers away.
For we have been15consumed by Your anger And by Your wrath we have been hdismayed.
You have 16placed our iniquitiesbefore You, Our 17secret sins in the light of Your presence.
For 18all our days have declined in Your fury ; We have finished our yearslike a isigh.
As for the days of our jlife, kthey contain seventyyears, Or if due to strength, 19eightyyears, Yet their pride is but 20labor and sorrow ; For soon it is gone and we 21flyaway.
11Wholunderstands the 22power of Your anger And Your fury, according to the 23fearmthat is due You?
12So24teach us to number our days, That we may n25present to You a heart of wisdom.
Do 26return, O LORD ; 27howlong will it be? And obe 28sorry for Your servants.
O 29satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, That we may 30sing for joy and be gladall our days.
1531Make us gladpaccording to the days You have afflicted us, And the 32years we have seenqevil.
Let Your 33workappear to Your servants And Your 34majestyrto their children.
Let the 35favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And s36confirm for us the work of our hands ; Yes, tconfirm the work of our hands.
