You have cut short1 the days of his youth; you have covered him with a mantle of shame.2 "Selah"
How long, O LORD? Will you hide yourself forever? How long will your wrath burn like fire?347
Remember how fleeting is my life.4 For what futility you have created all men!
What man can live and not see death, or save himself from the power of the gravea ?5 "Selah"
O Lord, where is your former great love, which in your faithfulness you swore to David?
Remember, Lord, how your servant hasb been mocked,6 how I bear in my heart the taunts of all the nations,
the taunts with which your enemies have mocked, O LORD, with which they have mocked every step of your anointed one.752
Praise be to the LORD forever! Amen and Amen.8
