Psalms - Chapter 90 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, You have been our dwelling place {cf2super [85]} in all generations.
  • 2. Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
  • 3. You turn man to destruction, And say, "Return, O children of men."
  • 4. For a thousand years in Your sight Are like yesterday when it is past, And like a watch in the night.
  • 5. You carry them away like a flood; They are like a sleep. In the morning they are like grass which grows up:
  • 6. In the morning it flourishes and grows up; In the evening it is cut down and withers.
  • 7. For we have been consumed by Your anger, And by Your wrath we are terrified.
  • 8. You have set our iniquities before You, Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.
  • 9. For all our days have passed away in Your wrath; We finish our years like a sigh.
  • 10. The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years, Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
  • 11. Who knows the power of Your anger? For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath.
  • 12. So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
  • 13. Return, O Lord! How long? And have compassion on Your servants.
  • 14. Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days!
  • 15. Make us glad according to the days in which You have afflicted us, The years in which we have seen evil.
  • 16. Let Your work appear to Your servants, And Your glory to their children.
  • 17. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.
