Psalms 90 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

A Prayer of Moses the man of God.

90:1Lord, thou hast been our dwelling-place

In all generations.

90:2Before the mountains were brought forth,

Or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world,

Even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

90:3Thou turnest man to destruction,

And sayest, Return, ye children of men.

90:4For a thousand years in thy sight

Are but as yesterday when it is past,

And as a watch in the night.

90:5Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep:

In the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

90:6In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up;

In the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

90:7For we are consumed in thine anger,

And in thy wrath are we troubled.

90:8Thou hast set our iniquities before thee,

Our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

90:9For all our days are passed away in thy wrath:

We bring our years to an end as a sigh.

90:10The 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.

90:11Who knoweth the power of thine anger,

And thy wrath according to the fear that is due unto thee?

90:12So teach us to number our days,

That we may get us a heart of wisdom.

90:13Return, O Jehovah; how long?

And let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

90:14Oh satisfy us in the morning with thy lovingkindness,

That we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

90:15Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us,

And the years wherein we have seen evil.

90:16Let thy work appear unto thy servants,

And thy glory upon their children.

90:17And 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.
