Psalm 39

KJV 1 I said , I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. NIV 1 I said, "I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth as long as the wicked are in my presence." KJV 2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace , even from good; and my sorrow was stirred . NIV 2 But when I was silent and still, not even saying anything good, my anguish increased. KJV 3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned : then spake I with my tongue, NIV 3 My heart grew hot within me, and as I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: KJV 4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. NIV 4 "Show me, O LORD, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. KJV 5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. NIV 5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man's life is but a breath. "Selah" KJV 6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them. NIV 6 Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro: He bustles about, but only in vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it. KJV 7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee. NIV 7 "But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. KJV 8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish. NIV 8 Save me from all my transgressions; do not make me the scorn of fools. KJV 9 I was dumb , I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it. NIV 9 I was silent; I would not open my mouth, for you are the one who has done this. KJV 10 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand. NIV 10 Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow of your hand. KJV 11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah. NIV 11 You rebuke and discipline men for their sin; you consume their wealth like a moth-- each man is but a breath. "Selah" KJV 12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were. NIV 12 "Hear my prayer, O LORD, listen to my cry for help; be not deaf to my weeping. For I dwell with you as an alien, a stranger, as all my fathers were. KJV 13 O spare me, that I may recover strength , before I go hence , and be no more. NIV 13 Look away from me, that I may rejoice again before I depart and am no more."
