Psalms 39:1 {To the chief Musician, to 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 muzzle, while the wicked is before me.

Psalms 39:7 And now, what wait I for, Lord? 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; for *thou* hast done [it].

Psalms 39:13 Look away from me, and let me recover strength, before I go hence and be no more.
