Psalms 39

David's care of his thoughts.

Psalms 39:1 {To the chiefe Musician, [euen] to Ieduthun, A Psalme of Dauid.} I sayd, I will take heede to my waies, that I sinne not with my tongue: I will keepe my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. Psalms 39:2 I was dumbe with silence, I held my peace, [euen] from good, and my sorrow was stirred. Psalms 39:3 My heart was hot within mee, while I was musing the fire burned: [then] spake I with my tongue.

The consideration of the brevity and vanity of life,

Psalms 39:4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my dayes, what it [is: that] I may know how fraile I am. Psalms 39:5 Behold, thou hast made my dayes [as] an hand breadth, and mine age [is] as nothing before thee: verily euery man at his best state [is] altogether vanitie. Selah. Psalms 39:6 Surely euery man walketh in a vaine shew: surely they are disquieted in vaine: he heapeth vp [riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them.

the reverence of God's judgments,

Psalms 39:7 And now Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee. Psalms 39:8 Deliuer me from all my transgressions: make mee not the reproch of the foolish. Psalms 39:9 I was dumbe, I opened not my mouth; because thou diddest [it].

and prayer, are his bridles of impatience.

Psalms 39:10 Remooue thy stroke away from mee: I am consumed by the blowe of thine hand. Psalms 39:11 When thou with rebukes doest correct man for iniquitie, thou makest his beautie to consume away like a moth: surely euery man [is] vanitie. Selah. Psalms 39:12 Heare my prayer, O LORD, and giue eare vnto my crie, hold not thy peace at my teares: for I [am] a straunger with thee, and a soiourner, as all my fathers [were]. Psalms 39:13 O spare me, that I may recouer strength: before I goe hence, and be no more.
