To the chief Musician, even to *Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.
1 I said, I will atake heed to my ways,
That bI sin not with my tongue:
While the wicked is before me.
And my sorrow was †stirred.
3 eMy heart was hot within me,
While I was fmusing the fire burned:
Then spake I with my tongue,
4 Lord, gMake me to know mine end,
And the measure of my days, what it is;
5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an ihandbreadth;
6 Surely every man walketh in †a vain shew:
oHe heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
pMy hope is in thee.
qMake me not the reproach of the foolish.
9 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,
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,
eBefore I go hence, and be no more.
