Psalms 39

David's care of his thoughts.

Psalms 39:1 {To the excellent musician Ieduthun. A Psalme of Dauid.} I thought, I will take heede to my wayes, that I sinne not with my tongue: I will keepe my mouth brideled, while the wicked is in my sight. Psalms 39:2 I was dumme & spake nothing: I kept silece euen from good, and my sorow was more stirred. Psalms 39:3 Mine heart was hote within me, and while I was musing, the fire kindeled, and I spake with my tongue, saying,

The consideration of the brevity and vanity of life,

Psalms 39:4 Lord, let me know mine ende, and the measure of my dayes, what it is: let mee knowe howe long I haue to liue. Psalms 39:5 Beholde, thou hast made my dayes as an hand breadth, and mine age as nothing in respect of thee: surely euery man in his best state is altogether vanitie. Selah. Psalms 39:6 Doubtlesse man walketh in a shadowe, and disquieteth himselfe in vaine: he heapeth vp riches, and cannot tell who shall gather them.

the reverence of God's judgments,

Psalms 39:7 And now Lord, what wait I for? mine hope is euen in thee. Psalms 39:8 Deliuer me from all my transgressions, and make me not a rebuke vnto the foolish. Psalms 39:9 I should haue bene dumme, and not haue opened my mouth, because thou didest it.

Psalms 39:10 Take thy plague away from mee: for I am consumed by the stroke of thine hand.

Psalms 39:12 Heare my prayer, O Lord, & hearken vnto my cry: keepe not silence at my teares, for I am a strager with thee, and a soiourner as all my fathers. Psalms 39:13 Stay thine anger from me, that I may recouer my strength, before I go hence and be not.
