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 39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred. Psalms 39:3 My heart was hot within me; while I was musing the fire kindled: [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 days, what it is; let me know how frail I am. Psalms 39:5 Behold, thou hast made my days [as] handbreadths; and mine age is as nothing before thee: surely every man at his best estate is altogether vanity. [Selah] Psalms 39:6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [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 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.

and prayer, are his bridles of impatience.

Psalms 39:10 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand. Psalms 39:11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. [Selah] Psalms 39:12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, 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 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
