1: A Prayer of Moses, the man of God. Lord, a habitation Thou -- Thou hast been, To us -- in generation and generation, 2: Before mountains were brought forth, And Thou dost form the earth and the world, Even from age unto age Thou [art] God. 3: Thou turnest man unto a bruised thing, And sayest, Turn back, ye sons of men. 4: For a thousand years in Thine eyes [are] as yesterday, For it passeth on, yea, a watch by night. 5: Thou hast inundated them, they are asleep, In the morning as grass he changeth. 6: In the morning it flourisheth, and hath changed, At evening it is cut down, and hath withered. 7: For we were consumed in Thine anger, And in Thy fury we have been troubled. 8: Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee, Our hidden things at the light of Thy face, 9: For all our days pined away in Thy wrath, We consumed our years as a meditation. 10: Days of our years, in them [are] seventy years, And if, by reason of might, eighty years, Yet [is] their enlargement labour and vanity, For it hath been cut off hastily, and we fly away. 11: Who knoweth the power of Thine anger? And according to Thy fear -- Thy wrath? 12: To number our days aright let [us] know, And we bring the heart to wisdom. 13: Turn back, O Jehovah, till when? And repent concerning Thy servants. 14: Satisfy us at morn [with] Thy kindness, And we sing and rejoice all our days. 15: Cause us to rejoice according to the days Wherein Thou hast afflicted us, The years we have seen evil. 16: Let Thy work appear unto Thy servants, And Thine honour on their sons. 17: And let the pleasantness of Jehovah our God be upon us, And the work of our hands establish on us, Yea, the work of our hands establish it!
