"But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.18
Save me2 from all my transgressions;3 do not make me the scorn4 of fools.
I was silent;5 I would not open my mouth,6 for you are the one who has done this.710
Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow8 of your hand.911
You rebuke10 and discipline11 men for their sin; you consume12 their wealth like a moth13-- each man is but a breath.14 "Selah"
"Hear my prayer, O LORD, listen to my cry for help;15 be not deaf16 to my weeping.17 For I dwell with you as an alien,18 a stranger,19 as all my fathers were.2013
Look away from me, that I may rejoice again before I depart and am no more."21
