Psalm 90

MSG 1 God, it seems you've been our home forever; NIV 1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. MSG 2 long before the mountains were born, Long before you brought earth itself to birth, from "once upon a time" to "kingdom come" - you are God. NIV 2 Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. MSG 3 So don't return us to mud, saying, "Back to where you came from!" NIV 3 You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men." MSG 4 Patience! You've got all the time in the world - whether a thousand years or a day, it's all the same to you. NIV 4 For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. MSG 5 Are we no more to you than a wispy dream, no more than a blade of grass NIV 5 You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning-- MSG 6 That springs up gloriously with the rising sun and is cut down without a second thought? NIV 6 though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered. MSG 7 Your anger is far and away too much for us; we're at the end of our rope. NIV 7 We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation. MSG 8 You keep track of all our sins; every misdeed since we were children is entered in your books. NIV 8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence. MSG 9 All we can remember is that frown on your face. Is that all we're ever going to get? NIV 9 All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan. MSG 10 We live for seventy years or so (with luck we might make it to eighty), And what do we have to show for it? Trouble. Toil and trouble and a marker in the graveyard. NIV 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. MSG 11 Who can make sense of such rage, such anger against the very ones who fear you? NIV 11 Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you. MSG 12 Oh! Teach us to live well! Teach us to live wisely and well! NIV 12 Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. MSG 13 Come back, God - how long do we have to wait? - and treat your servants with kindness for a change. NIV 13 Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants. MSG 14 Surprise us with love at daybreak; then we'll skip and dance all the day long. NIV 14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. MSG 15 Make up for the bad times with some good times; we've seen enough evil to last a lifetime. NIV 15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble. MSG 16 Let your servants see what you're best at - the ways you rule and bless your children. NIV 16 May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children. MSG 17 And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us, confirming the work that we do. Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do! NIV 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.
