PS 39:1 To the Overseer, to Jeduthun. -- A Psalm of David. I have said, `I observe my ways, Against sinning with my tongue, I keep for my mouth a curb, while the wicked `is' before me.'

PS 39:2 I was dumb `with' silence, I kept silent from good, and my pain is excited.

PS 39:3 Hot `is' my heart within me, In my meditating doth the fire burn, I have spoken with my tongue.

PS 39:4 `Cause me to know, O Jehovah, mine end, And the measure of my days -- what it `is',' I know how frail I `am'.

PS 39:5 Lo, handbreadths Thou hast made my days, And mine age `is' as nothing before Thee, Only, all vanity `is' every man set up. Selah.

PS 39:6 Only, in an image doth each walk habitually, Only, `in' vain, they are disquieted, He heapeth up and knoweth not who gathereth them.

PS 39:7 And, now, what have I expected? O Lord, my hope -- it `is' of Thee.

PS 39:8 From all my transgressions deliver me, A reproach of the fool make me not.

PS 39:9 I have been dumb, I open not my mouth, Because Thou -- Thou hast done `it'.

PS 39:10 Turn aside from off me Thy stroke, From the striving of Thy hand I have been consumed.

PS 39:11 With reproofs against iniquity, Thou hast corrected man, And dost waste as a moth his desirableness, Only, vanity `is' every man. Selah.

PS 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah, And `to' my cry give ear, Unto my tear be not silent, For a sojourner I `am' with Thee, A settler like all my fathers.

PS 39:13 Look from me, and I brighten up before I go and am not!
