Gods Eternity and Mans Transitoriness.
A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.
1Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.
2Before the mountains were born
3You turn man back into dust
4For a thousand years in Your sight
5You have swept them away like a flood, they fall asleep;
6In the morning it flourishes and sprouts anew;
7For we have been consumed by Your anger
8You have placed our iniquities before You,
9For all our days have declined in Your fury;
10As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years,
11Who understands the power of Your anger
12So teach us to number our days,
13Do return, O LORD; how long will it be?
14O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness,
15Make us glad according to the days You have afflicted us,
16Let Your work appear to Your servants
17Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us;
