Psalm 90:2-4 American Standard Version (ASV)

Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever thou [a]hadst formed the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
Thou turnest man to [b]destruction,
And sayest, Return, ye children of men.
For a thousand years in thy sight
Are but as yesterday [c]when it is past,
And as a watch in the night.


  1. Psalm 90:2 Hebrew gavest birth to.
  2. Psalm 90:3 Or, dust. Hebrew crushing.
  3. Psalm 90:4 Or, when it passeth

Psalm 90:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
A thousand years in your sight
    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.
