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
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
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
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
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.
