Lord thou hast ‘ been our ‘ refuge : from one gener’ation ‘ to an’other.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the earth and the ‘ world were ‘ made : thou
art God from ever’lasting and ‘ world without ‘ end.
3 Thou turnest ‘ man . to de’struction : again thou sayest, Come a’gain ye ‘ children of ‘ men.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight ‘ are but as ‘ yesterday : seeing that is ‘ past . as a ‘ watch . in
the ‘ night.
5 As soon as thou scatterest them they are ‘ even as a ‘ sleep : and fade away ‘ suddenly ‘ like
the ‘ grass.
6 In the morning it is green and ‘ groweth ‘ up : but in the evening it is cut ‘ down dried ‘ up
and ‘ withered.
7 For we consume away in ‘ thy dis’pleasure : and are afraid at thy ‘ wrathful ‘ indig’nation.
8 Thou hast set our mis’deeds be’fore thee : and our secret ‘ sins . in the ‘ light of thy ‘
countenance.
9 For when thou art angry all our ‘ days are ‘ gone : we bring our years to an end as it ‘ were a ‘
tale that is ‘ told.
10 The days of our age are threescore years and ten, and though men be so strong that they come
to ‘ fourscore ‘ years : yet is their strength then but labour and sorrow, so soon passeth it
a’way and ‘ we are ‘ gone.
11 But who regardeth the ‘ power of thy ‘ wrath : for even thereafter as a man feareth ‘ so is ‘ thy
dis’pleasure.
12 So teach us to ‘ number our ‘ days : that we may ap’ply our ‘ hearts . unto ‘ wisdom.
