90:1 <> Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.
90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever you had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God.
90:3 You turn man to destruction, saying, "Return, you children of men."
90:4 For a thousand years in your sight Are but as yesterday when it is past, As a watch in the night.
90:5 You sweep them away as they sleep. In the morning they sprout like new grass.
90:6 In the morning it sprouts and springs up. By evening, it is withered and dry.
90:7 For we are consumed in your anger. We are troubled in your wrath.
90:8 You have set our iniquities before you, Our secret sins in the light of your presence.
90:9 For all our days have passed away in your wrath. We bring our years to an end as a sigh.
90:10 The days of our years are seventy, Or even by reason of strength eighty years; Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow, For it passes quickly, and we fly away.
90:11 Who knows the power of your anger, Your wrath according to the fear that is due to you?
90:12 So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
90:13 Relent, Yahweh! How long? Have compassion on your servants!
90:14 Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
90:15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, For as many years as we have seen evil.
90:16 Let your work appear to your servants; Your glory to their children.
90:17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us; Establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.
