New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. 1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. 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 man to destruction, And say, "Return, O children of men." 3 You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men."
4 For a thousand years in Your sight Are like yesterday when it is past, And like a watch 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 carry them away like a flood; They are like a sleep. In the morning they are like grass which grows up: 5 You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning--
6 In the morning it flourishes and grows up; In the evening it is cut down and withers. 6 though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.
7 For we have been consumed by Your anger, And by Your wrath we are terrified. 7 We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation.
8 You have set our iniquities before You, Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance. 8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9 For all our days have passed away in Your wrath; We finish our years like a sigh. 9 All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan.
10 The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years, Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; For it is soon cut off, 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 knows the power of Your anger? For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath. 11 Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.
12 So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom. 12 Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
13 Return, O Lord! How long? And have compassion on Your servants. 13 Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants.
14 Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, That we may rejoice and be glad 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 glad according to the days in which You have afflicted us, The years in which we have seen 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 Your work appear to Your servants, And Your glory to their children. 16 May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.
17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands. 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.
