Psalm 90

90
Book Four
From Everlasting to Everlasting
A #Ps. 17, title; 55:1 Prayer of Moses, the #Deut. 33:1; Josh. 14:6; Ezra 3:2man of God.
1Lord, you have been our #See Ps. 71:3dwelling place#90:1 Some Hebrew manuscripts (compare Septuagint) our refuge
in all generations.
2 # Prov. 8:25 Before the #[Deut. 33:15; Job 15:7] mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
# See Job 36:26 from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3You return man to dust
and say, #Gen. 3:19 “Return, #Eccles. 12:7O children of man!”#90:3 Or of Adam
4For #2 Pet. 3:8 a thousand years in your sight
are but as #[Ps. 39:5] yesterday when it is past,
or as #Ex. 14:24; Judg. 7:19a watch in the night.
5You #Ps. 58:9 sweep them away as with a flood; they are like #See Job 20:8 a dream,
like #Ps. 37:2; 103:15; 2 Kgs. 19:26; Isa. 40:6-8; 1 Pet. 1:24grass that is renewed in the morning:
6in #See Job 4:20 the morning it flourishes and is renewed;
in the evening it #Job 14:2; [Ps. 92:7] fades and #James 1:11withers.
7For we are brought to an end by your anger;
by your wrath we are dismayed.
8You have #Jer. 16:17; Heb. 4:13 set our iniquities before you,
our #Ps. 19:12secret sins in the light of your presence.
9For all our days pass away under your wrath;
we bring our years to an end like a sigh.
10The years of our life are seventy,
or even by reason of strength eighty;
yet their span#90:10 Or pride is but toil and trouble;
they are soon gone, and we fly away.
11Who considers the power of your anger,
and your wrath according to the fear of you?
12 # Ps. 39:4 So teach us to number our days
that we may get a heart of wisdom.
13 # Ps. 6:4 Return, O Lord! #See Ps. 74:9, 10 How long?
Have #Ps. 106:45; 135:14; Ex. 32:12; Deut. 32:36; Judg. 2:18; Jonah 3:10; See Gen. 6:6pity on your servants!
14Satisfy us in the #See Ps. 46:5 morning with your steadfast love,
that we may #See Ps. 85:6rejoice and be glad all our days.
15Make us glad for as many days as you have #[Deut. 8:2]afflicted us,
and for as many years as we have seen evil.
16Let your #Ps. 77:12; 92:4; 95:9; Deut. 32:4; Hab. 3:2work be shown to your servants,
and your glorious power to their children.
17Let the #Ps. 27:4 favor#90:17 Or beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish #[Ps. 128:2]; [Isa. 26:12]the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands!
