Psalm 39:4-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 "Show me, O LORD, my life's end and the number of my days;1 let me know how fleeting2 is my life.3 5 You have made my days4 a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man's life is but a breath.5 "Selah" 6 Man is a mere phantom6 as he goes to and fro:7 He bustles about, but only in vain;8 he heaps up wealth,9 not knowing who will get it.10 7 "But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.11 8 Save me12 from all my transgressions;13 do not make me the scorn14 of fools. 9 I was silent;15 I would not open my mouth,16 for you are the one who has done this.17 10 Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow18 of your hand.19 11 You rebuke20 and discipline21 men for their sin; you consume22 their wealth like a moth23-- each man is but a breath.24 "Selah" 12 "Hear my prayer, O LORD, listen to my cry for help;25 be not deaf26 to my weeping.27 For I dwell with you as an alien,28 a stranger,29 as all my fathers were.30 13 Look away from me, that I may rejoice again before I depart and am no more."31
