Psalm 90:12Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
12 Teach us how short our lives are
so that we can become wise.
Psalm 90:12New Living Translation (NLT)
12 Teach us to realize the brevity of life,
so that we may grow in wisdom.
Psalm 90:12-17The Message (MSG)
12-17 Oh! Teach us to live well!
Teach us to live wisely and well!
Come back, God—how long do we have to wait?—
and treat your servants with kindness for a change.
Surprise us with love at daybreak;
then we’ll skip and dance all the day long.
Make up for the bad times with some good times;
we’ve seen enough evil to last a lifetime.
Let your servants see what you’re best at—
the ways you rule and bless your children.
And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us,
confirming the work that we do.
Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!
Psalm 90:12New International Version (NIV)
12 Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
