Psalm 39 The Fleeting Nature of Life For the choir director, for Jeduthun. A Davidic psalm. 39   1I said, “I will guard my ways so that I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth with a muzzle as long as the wicked are in my presence.” 2I was speechless and quiet; I kept silent, even from speaking good, and my pain intensified. 3My heart grew hot within me; as I mused, a fire burned. I spoke with my tongue: 4Lord, reveal to me the end of my life and the number of my days. Let me know how short-lived I am. 5You, indeed, have made my days short in length, and my life span as nothing in Your sight. Yes, every mortal man is only a vapor.Selah   6“Certainly, man walks about like a mere shadow. Indeed, they frantically rush around in vain, gathering possessions without knowing who will get them. 7Now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You. 8Deliver me from all my transgressions; do not make me the taunt of fools. 9I am speechless; I do not open my mouth because of what You have done. 10Remove Your torment from me; I fade away because of the force of Your hand. 11You discipline a man with punishment for sin, consuming like a moth what is precious to him; every man is only a vapor.Selah   12“Hear my prayer, Lord, and listen to my cry for help; do not be silent at my tears. For I am a foreigner residing with You, a temporary resident like all my fathers. 13Turn Your angry gaze from me so that I may be cheered up before I die and am gone.”

Hear my prayer, O Lord! Listen to my cries for help! Don’t ignore my tears. For I am Your guest–a traveler passing through, as my ancestors were before me. -Psalms 39:12 (NLT) David realized how sort life and that everything belongs to God including life itself and in v12 he says "For I am Your guest–a traveler passing through, as my ancestors were before me."
