Oh, remember how short you have made man’s lifespan. Is it an empty, futile life you give the sons of men?
But God, you did walk off and leave us, you lost your temper with the one you anointed. You tore up the promise you made to your servant, you stomped his crown in the mud. You blasted his home to kingdom come, reduced his city to a pile of rubble Picked clean by wayfaring strangers, a joke to all the neighbors. You declared a holiday for all his enemies, and they’re celebrating for all they’re worth. Angry, you opposed him in battle, refused to fight on his side; You robbed him of his splendor, humiliated this warrior, ground his kingly honor in the dirt. You took the best years of his life and left him an impotent, ruined husk. How long do we put up with this, God? Are you gone for good? Will you hold this grudge forever? Remember my sorrow and how short life is. Did you create men and women for nothing but this? We’ll see death soon enough. Everyone does. And there’s no back door out of hell. So where is the love you’re so famous for, Lord? What happened to your promise to David? Take a good look at your servant, dear Lord; I’m the butt of the jokes of all nations, The taunting jokes of your enemies, God, as they dog the steps of your dear anointed.
Remember how short my time is! Why have You made all people in such emptiness?
Remember how short my life is! Have you created Adam’s descendants for no reason?
How long, Lord? Will you hide forever? Must your wrath smolder like fire?

Take note of my brief lifespan! Why do you make all people so mortal?

How long, Adonai, will You hide Yourself? Forever? Will Your fury keep burning like fire?

Remember, I pray Thee, what [is] life-time? Wherefore in vain hast Thou created All the sons of men?
