Psalm 90

BOOK IV

Psalms 90–106

Psalm 90

A prayer of Moses the man of God.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
A thousand years in your sight
    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.
Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
    they are like the new grass of the morning:
In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it is dry and withered.

We are consumed by your anger
    and terrified by your indignation.
You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.
All our days pass away under your wrath;
    we finish our years with a moan.
10 Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures;
yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days,
    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

13 Relent, Lord! How long will it be?
    Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
    that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
    for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,
    your splendor to their children.

17 May the favor[a] of the Lord our God rest on us;
    establish the work of our hands for us—
    yes, establish the work of our hands.

Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 90

卷四:詩篇90—106

上帝與世人

上帝的僕人摩西的祈禱。

1主啊,
你是我們世世代代的居所。
群山尚未誕生,
大地和世界還未形成,
從亙古到永遠,你是上帝。
你叫人歸回塵土,
說:「世人啊,歸回塵土吧。」
在你眼中,
千年如一日,又如夜裡的一更。
你像急流一般把世人沖走,
叫他們如夢消逝。
他們像清晨的嫩草,
清晨還生機盎然,
傍晚就凋謝枯萎。
你的怒氣使我們滅亡,
你的憤怒使我們戰抖。
你知道我們的罪惡,
對我們隱秘的罪瞭若指掌。
我們活在你的烈怒之下,
一生就像一聲歎息飛逝而去。
10 我們一生七十歲,
強壯的可活八十歲,
但人生最美好的時光也充滿勞苦和愁煩,
生命轉瞬即逝,
我們便如飛而去。
11 誰明白你憤怒的威力?
有誰因為明白你的烈怒而對你心存敬畏呢?
12 求你教導我們明白人生有限,
使我們做有智慧的人。
13 耶和華啊,我還要苦候多久呢?
求你憐憫你的僕人。
14 求你在清晨以慈愛來滿足我們,
使我們一生歡喜歌唱。
15 你使我們先前經歷了多少苦難和不幸的歲月,
求你也賜給我們多少歡樂的歲月。
16 求你讓僕人們看見你的作為,
讓我們的後代看見你的威榮。
17 願主——我們的上帝恩待我們,
使我們所做的亨通,
使我們所做的亨通。
