Bible: Psalm 39:4-7

39:4O Lord, help me understand my mortality

and the brevity of life! 1 

Let me realize how quickly my life will pass! 2 

39:5 Look, you make my days short-lived, 3 

and my life span is nothing from your perspective. 4 

Surely all people, even those who seem secure, are nothing but vapor. 5 

39:6 Surely people go through life as mere ghosts. 6 

Surely they accumulate worthless wealth

without knowing who will eventually haul it away.” 7 

39:7 But now, O Lord, upon what am I relying?

You are my only hope! 8
