Psalms Chapter 90 (Index)

001  A Prayer of Moses the man of God. LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

002  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

003  Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

004  For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

005  Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

006  In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

007  For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

008  Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

009  For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

010  The days of our years are threescore years and ten; 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.

011  Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.

012  So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

013  Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

014  O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

015  Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

016  Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.

017  And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
