|[A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.]||<p>||Mgn||Edit||<p>|
|1||LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.||BOOK 4. (Ps.90-106) Of God & Man.||<DD>||Mgn||Edit||<p>|
|2||Before the mountains were brought forth, |
or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting thou art God.
|3||Thou turnest man back to the dust, |
and sayest, "Turn back, O children of men!"
|4||For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, |
or as a watch in the night.
|5||Thou dost sweep men away; they are like a dream, |
like grass which is renewed in the morning:
|6||in the morning it flourishes and is renewed; |
in the evening it fades and withers.
|7||For we are consumed by thy anger; |
by thy wrath we are overwhelmed.
|8||Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, |
our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
|9||For all our days pass away under thy wrath, |
our years come to an end like a sigh.
|10||The years of our life are threescore and ten, |
or even by reason of strength fourscore; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.
|11||Who considers the power of thy anger, |
and thy wrath according to the fear of thee?
|12||So teach us to number our days |
that we may get a heart of wisdom.
|13||Return, O LORD! How long? |
Have pity on thy servants!
|14||Satisfy us in the morning with thy steadfast love, |
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
|15||Make us glad as many days as thou hast afflicted us, |
and as many years as we have seen evil.
|16||Let thy work be manifest to thy servants, |
and thy glorious power to their children.
|17||Let the favor 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.
