|A Prayer of Moses the man of God.
|1||LORD, thou hast been
our dwelling place in all generations.
||dwelling place in all generations|
|2||Before the mountains
were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world,
even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
||everlasting to everlasting|
|3||Thou turnest man to
destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
|4||For a thousand years
in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as
watch in the night.
|5||Thou carriest them
away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they
are like grass which groweth up.
||with a flood|
|6||In the morning it
flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and
|7||For we are consumed
by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
|8||Thou hast set our
iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy
|9||For all our days are
passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
||tale that is told|
|10||The days of our
years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of
they be fourscore years, yet is their strength
sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
||threescore years and ten|
|11||Who knoweth the
power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy
|12||So teach us
to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
||number our days|
|13||Return, O LORD, how
long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
|14||O satisfy us early
with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
||satisfy us early|
|15||Make us glad
according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and
the years wherein we have seen evil.
|16||Let thy work appear
unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.
|17||And let the beauty
of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our
upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
||be upon us|
