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." 2But as I stood there in silence - not even speaking of good things - the turmoil within me grew worse. 3The more I thought about it, the hotter I got, igniting a fire of words. 4"LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered - how fleeting my life is. 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." Interlude 6We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. We heap up wealth, not knowing who will spend it. 7And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you. 8Rescue me from my rebellion. Do not let fools mock me. 9I am silent before you; I won't say a word, for my punishment is from you. 10But please stop striking me! I am exhausted by the blows from your hand. 11When you discipline us for our sins, you consume like a moth what is precious to us. Each of us is but a breath. Interlude 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. 13Leave me alone so I can smile again before I am gone and exist no more.
