90 Lord, You have been our [b]dwelling place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were born [c]Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
3 You turn man back into dust And say, “Return, O children of men.” 4 For a thousand years in Your sight Are like yesterday when it passes by, [d]Or as a watch in the night. 5 You have [e]swept them away like a flood, they [f]fall asleep; In the morning they are like grass which [g]sprouts anew. 6 In the morning it flourishes and [h]sprouts anew; Toward evening it fades and withers away.
7 For we have been consumed by Your anger And by Your wrath we have been [i]dismayed. 8 You have placed our iniquities before You, Our secret sins in the light of Your presence. 9 For all our days have declined in Your fury; We have finished our years like a [j]sigh. 10 As for the days of our [k]life, [l]they contain seventy years, Or if due to strength, eighty years, Yet their pride is butlabor and sorrow; For soon it is gone and we fly away. 11 Who [m]understands the power of Your anger And Your fury, according to the fear [n]that is due You? 12 So teach us to number our days, That we may [o]present to You a heart of wisdom.
13 Do return, O Lord; how long will it be? And [p]be sorry for Your servants. 14 O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. 15 Make us glad [q]according to the days You have afflicted us, And the years we have seen [r]evil. 16 Let Your work appear to Your servants And Your majesty [s]to their children. 17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And [t]confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, [u]confirm the work of our hands.
