psalm 39:4-5

4 "O Lord, make me know my end

and what is the measure of my days;

and my lifetime is as nothing before you.

Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath!

Saturday, March 4

psalm 39:10-11

10 Remove your stroke from me;

I am spent by the hostility of your hand.

with rebukes for sin,

you consume like a moth what is dear to him;

surely all mankind is a mere breath!

psalm 39:12-13

12 "Hear my prayer, O Lord,

and give ear to my cry;

hold not your peace at my tears!

For I am a sojourner with you,

a guest, like all my fathers.

13 Look away from me, that I may smile again,

before I depart and am no more!"
