Psalm 39:1-6

NRS 1 I said, "I will guard my ways that I may not sin with my tongue; I will keep a muzzle on my mouth as long as 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.” NRS 2 I was silent and still; I held my peace to no avail; my distress grew worse, NIV 2 So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased; NRS 3 my heart became hot within me. While I mused, 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: NRS 4 "Lord, let me know my end, and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. NIV 4 “Show me, LORD, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. NRS 5 You have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing in your sight. Surely everyone stands as 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. NRS 6 Surely everyone goes about like a shadow. Surely for nothing they are in turmoil; they heap up, and do not know who will gather. 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.
