A prayer of Moses, the man of God.
1 Lord, You have been our refuge k
in every generation. l
before You gave birth to the earth and the world,
from eternity to eternity, You are God. m
saying, “Return, descendants of Adam.” n
are like yesterday that passes by,
like a few hours of the night. o
They are like grass that grows in the morning—
by evening it withers and dries up. r
we are terrified by Your wrath. s
our secret sins in the light of Your presence. t
we end our years like a sigh. u
10 Our lives last v seventy years
or, if we are strong, eighty years.
Even the best of them are w struggle and sorrow;
indeed, they pass quickly and we fly away. x
Your wrath matches the fear that is due You. y
Turn and have compassion on Your servants. b
so that we may shout with joy and be glad all our days. c
for as many years as we have seen adversity. d
and Your splendor by their children. e
establish for us the work of our hands—
establish the work of our hands! f
