PSALM 39 The Vanity of Life. For the choir director, for Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. 39   1I said, “I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle While the wicked are in my presence.” 2I was mute [I]and silent, I [J]refrained even from good, And my [K]sorrow grew worse. 3My heart was hot within me, While I was musing the fire burned; Then I spoke with my tongue: 4Lord, make me to know my end And what is the extent of my days; Let me know how transient I am. 5“Behold, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my lifetime as nothing in Your sight; Surely every man [L]at his best is [M]a mere breath. [N]Selah. 6“Surely every man walks about as [O]a phantom; Surely they make an uproar for nothing; He amasses riches and does not know who will gather them. 7“And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in You. 8“Deliver me from all my transgressions; Make me not the reproach of the foolish. 9“I have become mute, I do not open my mouth, Because it is You who have done it. 10“Remove Your plague from me; Because of the opposition of Your hand I am [P]perishing. 11“With reproofs You chasten a man for iniquity; You consume as a moth what is precious to him; Surely every man is a mere breath. Selah. 12“Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry; Do not be silent at my tears; For I am a stranger with You, A sojourner like all my fathers. 13“Turn Your gaze away from me, that I may [Q]smile again Before I depart and am no more.”
