Psalms 39

David's care of his thoughts.

Psalms 39:1 {For the Chief Musician, for Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.} I said, I will take heed to my ways, That I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, While the wicked is before me.

Psalms 39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in thee. Psalms 39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: Make me not the reproach of the foolish. Psalms 39:9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; Because thou didst it.

Psalms 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah, and give ear unto my cry; Hold not thy peace at my tears: For I am a stranger with thee, A sojourner, as all my fathers were. Psalms 39:13 Oh spare me, that I may recover strength, Before I go hence, and be no more.
