Remember, O Lord, what the measure of life is, for what vanity thou hast created all the sons of men!
What man can live and never see death? Who can deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? [Selah]
Lord, where is thy steadfast love of old, which by thy faithfulness thou didst swear to David?
Remember, O Lord, how thy servant is scorned; how I bear in my bosom the insults of the peoples,
with which thy enemies taunt, O LORD, with which they mock the footsteps of thy anointed.
Blessed be the LORD for ever! Amen and Amen.
