Psalms 39

1  To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David. I 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.

2  I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.

3  My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,

4  LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.

5  Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.

6  Surely every man walketh in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.

7  And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.

8  Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.

9  I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.

10  Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
