Psa. 39
To the choir director, to Jeduthun. A aPsalm of David
Psa. 39 :1 39:1 I said, I will keep my ways,
So that I do not sin with my atongue;
I will keep a muzzle on my mouth
When the wicked are before me.
Psa. 39 :2 39:2 I was dumb and silent;
I held my peace, even from good;
And my pain was stirred up.
Psa. 39 :3 39:3 My heart was hot within me;
While I mused, the fire burned;
I spoke with my tongue:
Psa. 39 :4 39:4 O Jehovah, cause me to know my end,
And the measure of my adays, what it is.
May I know how transient I am.
Psa. 39 :5 39:5 Behold, You have made my adays as mere handbreadths,
And my lifetime is as nothing before You;
Surely every man 1at his best is altogether 2bvanity. Selah
Psa. 39 :6 39:6 Surely man goes about as a semblance;
Surely they bustle about in vain:
He aheaps up riches yet knows not
bWho will gather them.
Psa. 39 :7 39:7 And now what am I waiting for, O Lord?
My hope — it is in You.
Psa. 39 :8 39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions;
Do not make me the fool’s reproach.
Psa. 39 :9 39:9 I was adumb; I did not open my mouth;
For You have done this.
Psa. 39 :10 39:10 Remove Your plague from me;
By the hostility of Your hand I am consumed.
Psa. 39 :11 39:11 With rebukes You chasten a man because of iniquity,
And cause what is desirous to him to disappear like a moth.
Surely every man is avanity. Selah
Psa. 39 :12 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah;
And give ear to my cry;
Do not hold Your peace at my tears.
For I am a stranger with You,
A sojourner, as all my fathers were.
Psa. 39 :13 39:13 Look away from me, that I may be cheerful,
Before I go away and am no more.
