90 Lord, You have been our [b]dwelling place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were born [c]Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
3 You turn mortals back into dust And say, “Return, you sons of mankind.” 4 For a thousand years in Your sight Are like yesterday when it passes by, [d]Or like a watch in the night. 5 You have [e]swept them away like a flood, they [f]fall asleep; In the morning they are like grass that [g]sprouts anew. 6 In the morning it flourishes and [h]sprouts anew; Toward evening it wilts and withers away.
7 For we have been consumed by Your anger, And we have been terrified by Your wrath. 8 You have placed our guilty deeds before You, Our hidden sins in the light of Your presence. 9 For all our days have dwindled away in Your fury; We have finished our years like a [i]sigh. 10 As for the days of our [j]life, [k]they contain seventy years, Or if due to strength, eighty years, Yet their pride is onlytrouble and tragedy; For it quickly passes, and we disappear. 11 Who [l]understands the power of Your anger And Your fury, according to the fear [m]that is due You? 12 So teach us to number our days, That we may [n]present to You a heart of wisdom.
13 Do return, Lord; how long will it be? And [o]be sorry for Your servants. 14 Satisfy us in the morning with Your graciousness, That we may sing for joy and rejoice all our days. 15 Make us glad [p]according to the days You have afflicted us, And the years we have seen [q]evil. 16 Let Your work appear to Your servants And Your majesty [r]to their children. 17 May the kindness of the Lord our God be upon us; And [s]confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, [t]confirm the work of our hands.
