39:1 (39:1) For the Leader, for Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. (39:2) I said: 'I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue; I will keep a curb upon my mouth, while the wicked is before me.'

39:2 (39:3) I was dumb with silence; I held my peace, had no comfort; and my pain was held in check.

39:3 (39:4) My heart waxed hot within me; while I was musing, the fire kindled; then spoke I with my tongue:

39:4 (39:5) 'LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; let me know how short-lived I am.

39:5 (39:6) Behold, Thou hast made my days as hand-breadths; and mine age is as nothing before Thee; surely every man at his best estate is altogether vanity. Selah

39:6 (39:7) Surely man walketh as a mere semblance; surely for vanity they are in turmoil; he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.

39:7 (39:8) And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope, it is in Thee.

39:8 (39:9) Deliver me from all my transgressions; make me not the reproach of the base.

39:9 (39:10) I am dumb, I open not my mouth; because Thou hast done it.

39:10 (39:11) Remove Thy stroke from off me; I am consumed by the blow of Thy hand.

39:11 (39:12) With rebukes dost Thou chasten man for iniquity, and like a moth Thou makest his beauty to consume away; surely every man is vanity. Selah

39:12 (39:13) Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; keep not silence at my tears; for I am a stranger with Thee, a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

39:13 (39:14) Look away from me, that I may take comfort, before I go hence, and be no more.'
