GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 O Lord, you have been our refuge throughout every generation. 1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
2 Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, you were God. You are God from everlasting to everlasting. 2 Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3 You turn mortals back into dust and say, "Return, descendants of Adam." 3 You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men."
4 Indeed, in your sight a thousand years are like a single day, like yesterday--already past-- like an hour in the night. 4 For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
5 You sweep mortals away. They are a dream. They sprout again in the morning like cut grass. 5 You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning--
6 In the morning they blossom and sprout. In the evening they wither and dry up. 6 though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.
7 Indeed, your anger consumes us. Your rage terrifies us. 7 We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation.
8 You have set our sins in front of you. You have put our secret sins in the light of your presence. 8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9 Indeed, all our days slip away because of your fury. We live out our years like one [long] sigh. 9 All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan.
10 Each of us lives for 70 years-- or even 80 if we are in good health. But the best of them [bring] trouble and misery. Indeed, they are soon gone, and we fly away. 10 The length of our days is seventy years-- or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 Who fully understands the power of your anger? A person fears you more when he better understands your fury. 11 Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.
12 Teach us to number each of our days so that we may grow in wisdom. 12 Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
13 Return, LORD! How long...? Change your plans about [us,] your servants. 13 Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us every morning with your mercy so that we may sing joyfully and rejoice all our days. 14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us rejoice for as many days as you have made us suffer, for as many years as we have experienced evil. 15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 Let [us,] your servants, see what you can do. Let our children see your glorious power. 16 May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.
17 Let the kindness of the Lord our God be with us. Make us successful in everything we do. Yes, make us successful in everything we do. 17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us-- yes, establish the work of our hands.
