1

For the Chief Musician, Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. I said, I will take heed to my ways, That I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, While the wicked is before me.

2

I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; And my sorrow was stirred.

3

My heart was hot within me; While I was musing the fire burned: Then spake I with my tongue:

4

Jehovah, make me to know mine end, And the measure of my days, what it is; Let me know how frail I am.

5

Behold, thou hast made my days as handbreadths; And my life-time is as nothing before thee: Surely every man at his best estate is altogether vanity. Selah

6

Surely every man walketh in a vain show; Surely they are disquieted in vain: He heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.

7

And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in thee.

8

Deliver me from all my transgressions: Make me not the reproach of the foolish.

9

I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; Because thou didst it.

10

Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thy hand.

11

When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, Thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: Surely every man is vanity. Selah

12

Hear my prayer, O Jehovah, and give ear unto my cry; Hold not thy peace at my tears: For I am a stranger with thee, A sojourner, as all my fathers were.

13

Oh spare me, that I may recover strength, Before I go hence, and be no more.
