PSALMS · Chapter 90
90:1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.
90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, before even you had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God.
90:3 You turn man to destruction; and says, Return, all of you children of men.
90:4 For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
90:5 You carry them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which grows up.
90:6 In the morning it flourishes, and grows up; in the evening it is cut down, and withers.
90:7 For we are consumed by your anger, and by your wrath are we troubled.
90:8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance.
90:9 For all our days are passed away in your wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
90:10 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.
90:11 Who knows the power of your anger? even according to your fear, so is your wrath.
90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
90:13 Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent you concerning your servants.
90:14 O satisfy us early with your mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
90:15 Make us glad according to the days wherein you have afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.
90:16 Let your work appear unto your servants, and your glory unto their children.
90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish you the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish you it.
