Chapter 90

1

A Prayer of Moses the man of God.
Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

2

Before the mountains were brought forth,27 or ever thou hadst formed34 the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.

3

Thou turnest55 man to destruction; and sayest,4 Return,3 ye children of men.

4

For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday 3117 when it is past,4 and [as] a watch in the night.

5

Thou carriest them away as with a flood;1 they are [as] a sleep: in the morning [they are] like grass [which] groweth up.4

6

In the morning it flourisheth,55 and groweth up;1 in the evening it is cut down,34 and withereth.1

7

For we are consumed1 by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.8

8

Thou hast set1 our iniquities before thee, our secret7 [sins] in the light of thy countenance.

9

For all our days are passed away1 in thy wrath: we spend14 our years as a tale [that is told].

10

The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is] their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off,1 and we fly away.4

11

Who knoweth6 the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, [so is] thy wrath.

12

So teach54 [us] to number2 our days, that we may apply55 [our] hearts unto wisdom.

13

Return,3 O LORD, how long? and let it repent10 thee concerning thy servants.

14

O satisfy16 us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice17 and be glad4 all our days.

15

Make us glad16 according to the days [wherein] thou hast afflicted14 us, [and] the years [wherein] we have seen1 evil.

16

Let thy work appear11 unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.

17

And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish33 thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish33 thou it.
