New International Version
4 “Show me, Lord, my life’s end
and the number of my days;(A)
let me know how fleeting(B) my life is.(C)
5 You have made my days(D) a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,(E)
even those who seem secure.[a]
7 “But now, Lord, what do I look for?
My hope is in you.(K)
- Psalm 39:5 The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verse 11.
