Psalms 90

90:1 A prayer of Moses the man of God. LORD, thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations. 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God. 90:3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men. 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night. 90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are [as] a sleep; in the morning [they are] like grass [which] groweth. 90:6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth. 90:7 For we are consumed by thy anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled. 90:8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret [sins] in the light of thy countenance. 90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years, as a tale [that is told]. 90:10 The days of our years [are] seventy years; and if by reason of strength [they are] eighty years, yet [is] their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. 90:11 Who knoweth the power of thy anger? even according to thy fear, [so is] thy wrath. 90:12 So teach [us] to number [our] days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom. 90:13 Return, O LORD, how long? and repent thou concerning thy servants. 90:14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. 90:15 Make us glad according to the days [in which] thou hast afflicted us, [and] the years [in which] we have seen evil. 90:16 Let thy work appear to thy servants, and thy glory to their children. 90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yes, the work of our hands establish thou it.
