Psalm 90

CEB 1 Lord, you have been our help, generation after generation. NRS 1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. CEB 2 Before the mountains were born, before you birthed the earth and the inhabited world— from forever in the past to forever in the future, you are God. NRS 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. CEB 3 You return people to dust, saying, "Go back, humans," NRS 3 You turn us back to dust, and say, "Turn back, you mortals." CEB 4 because in your perspective a thousand years are like yesterday past, like a short period during the night watch. NRS 4 For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday when it is past, or like a watch in the night. CEB 5 You sweep humans away like a dream, like grass that is renewed in the morning. NRS 5 You sweep them away; they are like a dream, like grass that is renewed in the morning; CEB 6 True, in the morning it thrives, renewed, but come evening it withers, all dried up. NRS 6 in the morning it flourishes and is renewed; in the evening it fades and withers. CEB 7 Yes, we are wasting away because of your wrath; we are paralyzed with fear on account of your rage. NRS 7 For we are consumed by your anger; by your wrath we are overwhelmed. CEB 8 You put our sins right in front of you, set our hidden faults in the light from your face. NRS 8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance. CEB 9 Yes, all our days slip away because of your fury; we finish up our years with a whimper. NRS 9 For all our days pass away under your wrath; our years come to an end like a sigh. CEB 10 We live at best to be seventy years old, maybe eighty, if we're strong. But their duration brings hard work and trouble because they go by so quickly. And then we fly off. NRS 10 The days of our life are seventy years, or perhaps eighty, if we are strong; even then their span is only toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away. CEB 11 Who can comprehend the power of your anger? The honor that is due you corresponds to your wrath. NRS 11 Who considers the power of your anger? Your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you. CEB 12 Teach us to number our days so we can have a wise heart. NRS 12 So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart. CEB 13 Come back to us, LORD! Please, quick! Have some compassion for your servants! NRS 13 Turn, O Lord! How long? Have compassion on your servants! CEB 14 Fill us full every morning with your faithful love so we can rejoice and celebrate our whole life long. NRS 14 Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. CEB 15 Make us happy for the same amount of time that you afflicted us— for the same number of years that we saw only trouble. NRS 15 Make us glad as many days as you have afflicted us, and as many years as we have seen evil. CEB 16 Let your acts be seen by your servants; let your glory be seen by their children. NRS 16 Let your work be manifest to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. CEB 17 Let the kindness of the Lord our God be over us. Make the work of our hands last. Make the work of our hands last! NRS 17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands— O prosper the work of our hands!
