Psalm 39

Psalm 39

To the chief Musician, even to *Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.

I said, I will atake heed to my ways,

That bI sin not with my tongue:

I will keep cmy mouth with a bridle,

While the wicked is before me.

dI was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even ddfrom good;

And my sorrow was stirred.

eMy heart was hot within me,

While I was fmusing the fire burned:

Then spake I with my tongue,

Lord, gMake me to know mine end,

And the measure of my days, what it is;

That I may know ||how hfrail I am.

Behold, thou hast made my days as an ihandbreadth;

And kmine lage is as nothing before thee:

mVerily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.

Surely every man walketh in a vain shew:

mSurely they nare disquieted in vain:

oHe heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.

And now, Lord, what wait I for?

pMy hope is in thee.

Deliver me from all my transgressions:

qMake me not the reproach of the foolish.

rI was dumb, I opened not my mouth;

sBecause thou didst it.

10  tRemove thy stroke away from me:

I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.

11  When thou with urebukes dost correct man for iniquity,

wThou makest his beauty to consume away xlike a moth:

ySurely every man is vanity. Selah.

12  yyHear my prayer, O Lord,

And give ear unto my cry;

zHold not thy peace at my tears:

For I am a astranger with thee,

And aa sojourner, bas all my fathers were.

13  O cspare me, that I may drecover strength,

eBefore I go hence, and be no more.
