- A Prayer of Moses the man of God.
- Lord, thou hast been our dwelling-place In all generations.
- Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
- Thou turnest man to destruction, And sayest, Return, ye children of men.
- For a thousand years in thy sight Are but as yesterday when it is past, And as a watch in the night.
- Thou carriest them away as with a flood;
they are as a sleep: In the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
- In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up;
In the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
- For we are consumed in thine anger, And in thy wrath are we troubled.
- Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, Our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
- For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: We bring our years to an end as a sigh.
- The days of our years are threescore years and ten, Or even by reason of strength fourscore years;
Yet is their pride but labor and sorrow;
For it is soon gone, and we fly away.
- Who knoweth the power of thine anger, And thy wrath according to the fear that is due unto thee?
- So teach us to number our days, That we may get us a heart of wisdom.
- Return, O Jehovah;
And let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
- Oh satisfy us in the morning with thy lovingkindness, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
- Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, And the years wherein we have seen evil.
- Let thy work appear unto thy servants, And thy glory upon their children.
- And 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.
