Psalms 39 (Remove Thy Scourges From Me!)

Psalms Chapter 39

Remove Thy Scourges From Me!
Listen to "Psalms 39 (Remove thy scourges from me!)" on Spreaker.

For the end, a Song of David, to Idithun.

1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I set a guard on my mouth, while the sinner stood in my presence. 2 I was dumb, and humbled myself, and kept silence from good words; and my grief was renewed. 3 My heart grew hot within me, and a fire would kindle in my meditation: I spoke with my tongue,

4 O Lord, make me to know mine end, and the number of my days, what it is; that I may not know what I lack. 5 Behold, thou hast made my days old; and my existence is as nothing before thee: nay, every man living is altogether vanity. Pause. 6 Surely man walks in a shadow; nay, he is disquieted in vain: he lays up treasures, and knows not for whom he shall gather them.

7 And now what is my expectation? is it not the Lord? and my ground of hope is with thee. Pause. 8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: thou hast made me a reproach to the foolish. 9 I was dumb, and opened not my mouth; for thou art he that made me. 10 Remove thy scourges from me: I have fainted by reason of the strength of thine hand. 11 Thou chastenest man with rebukes for iniquity, and thou makest his life to consume away like a spider’s web: nay, every man is disquieted in vain. Pause.

12 O Lord, hearken to my prayer and my supplication: attend to my tears: be not silent, for I am a sojourner in the land, and a stranger, as all my fathers were. 13 Spare me, that I may be refreshed, before I depart, and be no more.
