Psalms 39

David's care of his thoughts.

Psalms 39:1 {To the chaunter Ieduthun, a Psalme of Dauid.} I sayde: I will take hede to my wayes þt I offend not in my tonge. Psalms 39:2 I will kepe my mouth (as it were wt a brile) while þe vngodly is in my sight. Psalms 39:3 I helde my tonge, & spake nothinge, I kepte sylence yee, euen from good wordes, but it was payne & grefe to me.

The consideration of the brevity and vanity of life,

Psalms 39:4 My hert was hote within me, & whyle I was thus musyng, the fyre kyndled: and (at the last) I spake wyth my tonge: Psalms 39:5 Lorde, let me knowe myne ende, and the nombre of my dayes: that I maye be certyfied howe longe I haue to lyue. Psalms 39:6 Beholde, thou hast made my dayes as it were a spanne longe, and myne age is euen as nothing in respecte of the: & verely euery man lyuing is all together vanite. Selah.

the reverence of God's judgments,

Psalms 39:7 For man walketh in a vayne shadowe, and disquieteth him self in vayne: he heapeth vp riches & cannot tell who shall gather them. Psalms 39:8 And now Lord, what is my hope? trulye my hope is euen in the. Psalms 39:9 Delyuer me from all myne offences, & make me not a rebuke vnto the foolish.

and prayer, are his bridles of impatience.

Psalms 39:10 I became domme, & opened not my mouth, for it was thy doynge. Take thy plage awaye fro me: I am euen consumed by the meanes of thy heuye hand. Psalms 39:11 When þu wyth rebukes dost chasten man for sinne, þu makest his bewtye to consume awaye, like as it were a mothe fretinge a garment. Euery man therfore is but vanite. Selah. Psalms 39:12 Heare my prayer, O Lord, & wt thyne eares consydre my callynge: holde not thy peace at my teares. For I am a straunger wt þe, & a sogeourner, as all my fathers were. Psalms 39:13 Oh spare me a lytle, that I maye recouer my strength, before I goo hence, and be nomore sene.
