Psalms 39
To the Heavenly Worship Leader, [even] to Y’dutun [Praising], A Psalm (sacred song about or to God) of David [Beloved].
1I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
2I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, [even] from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
3My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: [then] spoke I with my tongue,
4Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it [is; that] I may know how frail I [am].
5Behold, youi have made my days [as] an handbreadth; and mine age [is] as nothing before youi: truly every man at his best state [is] altogether vanity. Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].
6Surely every man walks in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heaps up [riches], and knows not who shall gather them.
7And now, Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things], what wait I for? my hope [is] in youi.
8Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach (disgrace; shame) of the foolish.
9I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because youi did [it].
10Remove youri stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of youri hand.
11When youi with rebukes do correct man for iniquity, youi make his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man [is] vanity. Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].
12Hear my prayer, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], and give ear unto my cry; hold not youri peace at my tears: for I [am] a stranger with youi, [and] a sojourner, as all my fathers [were].
13O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
