90:1Lord, thou hast been our dwelling-place
In all generations.
90:2Before the mountains were brought forth,
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,
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.
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,
90:12So teach us to number our days,
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 thy glory upon their children.
And establish thou the work of our hands upon us;
Yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
