Psalms 39

David's care of his thoughts.

Psalms 39:1 To the Overseer, to Jeduthun.—A Psalm of David. I have said, 'I observe my ways, Against sinning with my tongue, I keep for my mouth a curb, while the wicked [is] before me.' Psalms 39:2 I was dumb [with] silence, I kept silent from good, and my pain is excited. Psalms 39:3 Hot [is] my heart within me, In my meditating doth the fire burn, I have spoken with my tongue.

The consideration of the brevity and vanity of life,

Psalms 39:4 'Cause me to know, O Jehovah, mine end, And the measure of my days—what it [is],' I know how frail I [am]. Psalms 39:5 Lo, handbreadths Thou hast made my days, And mine age [is] as nothing before Thee, Only, all vanity [is] every man set up. Selah. Psalms 39:6 Only, in an image doth each walk habitually, Only, [in] vain, they are disquieted, He heapeth up and knoweth not who gathereth them.

the reverence of God's judgments,

Psalms 39:7 And, now, what have I expected? O Lord, my hope—it [is] of Thee. Psalms 39:8 From all my transgressions deliver me, A reproach of the fool make me not. Psalms 39:9 I have been dumb, I open not my mouth, Because Thou—Thou hast done [it].

Psalms 39:10 Turn aside from off me Thy stroke, From the striving of Thy hand I have been consumed. Psalms 39:11 With reproofs against iniquity, Thou hast corrected man, And dost waste as a moth his desirableness, Only, vanity [is] every man. Selah. Psalms 39:12 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah, And [to] my cry give ear, Unto my tear be not silent, For a sojourner I [am] with Thee, A settler like all my fathers. Psalms 39:13 Look from me, and I brighten up before I go and am not!
