We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation.
You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins1 in the light of your presence.29
All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan.310
The length of our days is seventy years4-- or eighty,5 if we have the strength; yet their spana is but trouble and sorrow,6 for they quickly pass, and we fly away.711
Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath8 is as great as the fear that is due you.912
Teach us to number our days10 aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.1113
Relent, O LORD! How long12 will it be? Have compassion on your servants.1314
Satisfy14 us in the morning with your unfailing love,15 that we may sing for joy16 and be glad all our days.1715
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.
May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.1817
May the favorb of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us-- yes, establish the work of our hands.19
