fEven from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
3 Thou gturnest man to destruction;
And sayest, Return, ye children of men.
4 For ha thousand years in thy sight
And as a watch in the night.
And by thy wrath are we troubled.
8 rThou hast set our iniquities before thee,
sOur secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
9 For all our days are †passed away in thy wrath:
We spend our years ||as a tale that is told.
And if by reason of strength they be fourscore years,
Yet is their strength labour and sorrow;
For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
12 uSo teach us to number our days,
That we may †apply our hearts unto wisdom.
And let it yrepent thee concerning thy servants.
14 O satisfy us zearly with thy mercy;
That awe may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad according to bthe days wherein thou hast afflicted us,
And bthe years wherein we have seen evil.
16 Let cthy work appear unto thy servants,
And thy glory unto their children.
17 And let dthe beauty of the Lord our God be upon us:
And establish thou ethe work of our hands upon us;
Yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
