Bible: Psalm 90:7-17

90:7 Yes, 1  we are consumed by your anger;

we are terrified by your wrath.

90:8 You are aware of our sins; 2 

you even know about our hidden sins. 3 

90:9 Yes, 4  throughout all our days we experience your raging fury; 5 

the years of our lives pass quickly, like a sigh. 6 

90:10 The days of our lives add up to seventy years, 7 

or eighty, if one is especially strong. 8 

But even one’s best years are marred by trouble and oppression. 9 

Yes, 10  they pass quickly 11  and we fly away. 12 

90:11 Who can really fathom the intensity of your anger? 13 

Your raging fury causes people to fear you. 14 

90:12 So teach us to consider our mortality, 15 

so that we might live wisely. 16 

90:13 Turn back toward us, O Lord!

How long must this suffering last? 17 

Have pity on your servants! 18 

90:14 Satisfy us in the morning 19  with your loyal love!

Then we will shout for joy and be happy 20  all our days!

90:15 Make us happy in proportion to the days you have afflicted us,

in proportion to the years we have experienced 21  trouble!

90:16 May your servants see your work! 22 

May their sons see your majesty! 23 

90:17 May our sovereign God extend his favor to us! 24 

Make our endeavors successful!

Yes, make them successful! 25
