Psalm 39

NAS 1 I said, "I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle While the wicked are in my presence." NIV 1 I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked.” NAS 2 I was mute and silent, I refrained even from good, And my sorrow grew worse. NIV 2 So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased; NAS 3 My heart was hot within me, While I was musing the fire burned; Then I spoke with my tongue: NIV 3 my heart grew hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: NAS 4 "LORD , make me to know my end And what is the extent of my days; Let me know how transient I am. NIV 4 “Show me, LORD, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. NAS 5 "Behold, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my lifetime as nothing in Your sight; Surely every man at his best is a mere breath. Selah. NIV 5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure. NAS 6 "Surely every man walks about as a phantom; Surely they make an uproar for nothing; He amasses riches and does not know who will gather them. NIV 6 “Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom; in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be. NAS 7 "And now, Lord , for what do I wait? My hope is in You. NIV 7 “But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. NAS 8 "Deliver me from all my transgressions; Make me not the reproach of the foolish. NIV 8 Save me from all my transgressions; do not make me the scorn of fools. NAS 9 "I have become mute, I do not open my mouth, Because it is You who have done it. NIV 9 I was silent; I would not open my mouth, for you are the one who has done this. NAS 10 "Remove Your plague from me; Because of the opposition of Your hand I am perishing. NIV 10 Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow of your hand. NAS 11 "With reproofs You chasten a man for iniquity; You consume as a moth what is precious to him; Surely every man is a mere breath. Selah. NIV 11 When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin, you consume their wealth like a moth— surely everyone is but a breath. NAS 12 "Hear my prayer, O LORD , and give ear to my cry; Do not be silent at my tears; For I am a stranger with You, A sojourner like all my fathers. NIV 12 “Hear my prayer, LORD, listen to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping. I dwell with you as a foreigner, a stranger, as all my ancestors were. NAS 13 "Turn Your gaze away from me, that I may smile again Before I depart and am no more." NIV 13 Look away from me, that I may enjoy life again before I depart and am no more.”
