39:1 <> I said, "I will watch my ways, so that I don't sin with my tongue. I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked is before me."

39:2 I was mute with silence. I held my peace, even from good. My sorrow was stirred.

39:3 My heart was hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned: I spoke with my tongue:

39:4 "Yahweh, show me my end, What is the measure of my days. Let me know how frail I am.

39:5 Behold, you have made my days handbreadths. My lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely every man stands as a breath." Selah.

39:6 "Surely every man walks like a shadow. Surely they busy themselves in vain. He heaps up, and doesn't know who shall gather.

39:7 Now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you.

39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions. Don't make me the reproach of the foolish.

39:9 I was mute. I didn't open my mouth, Because you did it.

39:10 Remove your scourge away from me. I am overcome by the blow of your hand.

39:11 When you rebuke and correct man for iniquity, You consume his wealth like a moth. Surely every man is but a breath." Selah.

39:12 "Hear my prayer, Yahweh, and give ear to my cry. Don't be silent at my tears. For I am a stranger with you, A foreigner, as all my fathers were.

39:13 Oh spare me, that I may recover strength, Before I go away, and be no more."
