Psalms 39

David's care of his thoughts.

Psalms 39:1 {To the chiefe musition Ieduthun, a psalme of Dauid.} I sayde [to my selfe] I wyll take heede to my wayes, that I offende not in my tongue: I wyll kepe my mouth as it were with a brydell, whylest the vngodly is in my syght. Psalms 39:2 I became dumbe through scilence, I helde my peace from speakyng of good wordes: but the more was my sorowe increased. Psalms 39:3 My heart was hotte within me, and whyle I was thus musyng the fire kyndled: and [at the last] I spake with my tongue.

The consideration of the brevity and vanity of life,

Psalms 39:4 O God make me to knowe mine ende, and the number of my dayes: that I may be certified howe long I haue to lyue. Psalms 39:5 Behold thou hast made my dayes as it were an hand breadth long, & mine age is euen as nothing before thee: truely euery man is al [together] vanitie. Selah. Psalms 39:6 Truely man walketh in a vayne shadowe, truely he [and all his] do disquiet them selues in vayne: he heapeth vp riches, & can not tel who shal vse them.

the reverence of God's judgments,

Psalms 39:7 And nowe Lord what wayte I after? truely my hope is euen in thee. Psalms 39:8 Delyuer me from all my offences: and make me not a rebuke vnto the foolishe. Psalms 39:9 I became dumbe, and opened not my mouth: for it was thy doyng.

and prayer, are his bridles of impatience.

Psalms 39:10 Take thy plague away from me: I am euen consumed by the meanes of thy heauy hande. Psalms 39:11 Thou doest chasten man, rebukyng him for sinne: thou as a moth doest consume his excellencie, for in very deede euery man is but vanitie. Selah. Psalms 39:12 Heare my prayer O God, and geue eares to my crying, holde not thy peace at my teares: for I am a strauger with thee, and a soiourner as all my fathers were. Psalms 39:13 Oh spare me a litle, that I may recouer my strength: before I go hence, and be no more [seene.]
