To the chiefH5329 Musician,H5329 even to Jeduthun,H3038 A PsalmH4210 of David.H1732 I said,H559 I will take heedH8104 to my ways,H1870 that I sinH2398 not with my tongue:H3956 I will keepH8104 my mouthH6310 with a bridle,H4269 whileH5750 the wickedH7563 is beforeH5048 me.
I was dumbH481 with silence,H1747 I heldH2814 my peace,H2814 even from good;H2896 and my sorrowH3511 was stirred.H5916
My heartH3820 was hotH2552 withinH7130 me, while I was musingH1901 the fireH784 burned:H1197 then spokeH1696 I with my tongue,H3956
LORD,H3068 make me to knowH3045 my end,H7093 and the measureH4060 of my days,H3117 whatH4310 it is: that I may knowH3045 howH4100 frailH2310 I am.
Behold,H2009 you have madeH5414 my daysH3117 as an handbreadth;H2947 and my ageH2465 is as nothingH369 beforeH5048 you: trulyH389 everyH3605 manH120 at his bestH5324 stateH5324 is altogetherH3605 vanity.H1892 Selah.H5542
SurelyH389 every manH376 walksH1980 in a vain show:H6754 surelyH389 they are disquietedH1993 in vain:H1892 he heapsH6651 up riches, and knowsH3045 not whoH4310 shall gatherH622 them.
And now,H6258 Lord,H136 whatH4100 waitH6960 I for? my hopeH8431 is in you.
DeliverH5337 me from allH3605 my transgressions:H6588 makeH7760 me not the reproachH2781 of the foolish.H5036
I was dumb,H481 I openedH6605 not my mouth;H6310 becauseH3588 you didH6213 it.
RemoveH5493 your strokeH5061 away from me: I am consumedH3615 by the blowH8409 of your hand.H3027
When you with rebukesH8433 do correctH3256 manH376 for iniquity,H5771 you make his beautyH2530 to consumeH4529 away like a moth:H6211 surelyH389 everyH3605 manH120 is vanity.H1892 Selah.H5542
HearH8085 my prayer,H8605 O LORD,H3068 and give earH238 to my cry;H7775 holdH2790 not your peaceH2790 atH413 my tears:H1832 for I am a strangerH1616 with you, and a sojourner,H8453 as allH3605 my fathersH1 were.
O spareH8159 me, that I may recoverH1082 strength,H1082 beforeH2962 I goH3212 hence,H2088 and be noH369 more.
