Chapter 89


A prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, thou hast been our refuge from generation to generation.


Before the mountains were made, or the earth and the world was formed; from eternity and to eternity thou art God.


Turn not man away to be brought low: and thou hast said: Be converted, O ye sons of men.


For a thousand years in thy sight are as yesterday, which is past. And as a watch in the night,


things that are counted nothing, shall their years be.


In the morning man shall grow up like grass; in the morning he shall flourish and pass away: in the evening he shall fall, grow dry, and wither.


For in thy wrath we have fainted away: and are troubled in thy indignation.


Thou hast set our iniquities before thy eyes: our life in the light of thy countenance.


For all our days are spent; and in thy wrath we have fainted away. Our years shall be considered spider:


the days of our years in them are threescore and ten years. But if in the strong they be fourscore years: and what is more of them is labour and sorrow. For mildness is come upon us: and we shall be corrected.


Who knoweth the power of thy anger, and for thy fear


can number thy wrath? So make thy right hand known: and men learned in heart, in wisdom.


Return, O Lord, how long? and be entreated in favour of thy servants.


We are filled in the morning with thy mercy: and we have rejoiced, and are delighted all our days.


We have rejoiced for the days in which thou hast humbled us: for the years in which we have seen evils.


Look upon thy servants and upon their works: and direct their children.


And let the brightness of the Lord our God be upon us: and direct thou the works of our hands over us; yea, the work of our hands do thou direct.
