Psalms 39
New Living Translation
39[For Jeduthun, the choir director: A psalm of David.] I said to myself, "I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will hold my tongue when the ungodly are around me."H5329H3038H4210H1732H559H8104H1870H2398H3956H8104H6310H4269H7563 2But as I stood there in silence—not even speaking of good things—the turmoil within me grew worse.H481H1747H2814H2896H3511H5916 3The more I thought about it, the hotter I got, igniting a fire of words.H3820H2552H7130H1901H784H1197H227H1696H3956 4"LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered—how fleeting my life is.H3068H3045H7093H4060H3117H3045H2310 5You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath." InterludeH5414H3117H2947H2465H3605H120H5324H3605H1892H5542 6We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. We heap up wealth, not knowing who will spend it.H376H1980H6754H1993H1892H6651H3045H622 7And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.H136H6960H8431 8Rescue me from my rebellion. Do not let fools mock me.H5337H6588H7760H2781H5036 9I am silent before you; I won't say a word, for my punishment is from you.H481H6605H6310H6213 10But please stop striking me! I am exhausted by the blows from your hand.H5493H5061H5493H3615H8409H3027 11When you discipline us for our sins, you consume like a moth what is precious to us. Each of us is but a breath. InterludeH8433H3256H376H5771H2530H4529H6211H120H1892H5542 12Hear my prayer, O LORD! Listen to my cries for help! Don't ignore my tears. For I am your guest—a traveler passing through, as my ancestors were before me.H8085H8605H3068H238H7775H2790H1832H1616H8453H1 13Leave me alone so I can smile again before I am gone and exist no more.H8159H1082H3212
