|To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm
|1||I said, I will take

|2||I was dumb with
silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was
|3||My heart was hot
within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I
|4||LORD, make me to know
mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may

||measure of my days|
|5||Behold, thou hast

|7||And now, Lord, what
wait I for? my hope is in thee.
|8||Deliver me from all

|11||When thou with
rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to
away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
|12||Hear my prayer, O
LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I
am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all
|13||O spare me, that I
may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
