Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 39

David's care of his thoughts.

Psalms 39:1 {To the Chief Musician. For Jeduthun. A Melody of David.} I said, [to myself,] I will take heed to my ways, That I sin not with my tongue,—I will put on my mouth a muzzle, So long as the lawless is before me. Psalms 39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, afar from happiness, But, my pain had been stirred: Psalms 39:3 Hot was my heart within me, While I was musing, there was kindled a fire, I spake with my tongue!

The consideration of the brevity and vanity of life,

Psalms 39:4 Let me know, O Yahweh, mine end, And the measure of my days—what it is, I would know how short-lived I am. Psalms 39:5 Lo! as hand-breadths, hast thou granted my days, and my life-time, is as nothing before thee,—Surely, a mere breath, are all men, [even] such as stand firm. [Selah.] Psalms 39:6 Surely as a shadow, doth every man wander, Surely in vain, do they bustle about, he heapeth things up, and knoweth not who shall gather them in.

the reverence of God's judgments,

Psalms 39:7 Now, therefore, for what have I waited, O My Lord? My hope, is, in thee. Psalms 39:8 From all my transgressions, rescue thou me,—The reproach of the base, oh do not make me! Psalms 39:9 I am dumb, I cannot open my mouth, for, thou, hast done it.

and prayer, are his bridles of impatience.

Psalms 39:10 Remove from off me thy stroke, Because of the hostility of thy hand, am, I, consumed. Psalms 39:11 When, by rebukes for iniquity, thou hast corrected a man, Then hast thou consumed, as a moth, all that was delightful within him, Surely, a breath, are all men. [Selah.] Psalms 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Yahweh, And, unto my cry for help, give ear, At my tears, do not be silent,—For, a sojourner, am, I, with thee, A stranger, like all my fathers. Psalms 39:13 Look away from me that I may brighten up, Ere yet I depart and am no more.
