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.

诗篇 90

卷四:诗篇90—106

上帝与世人

上帝的仆人摩西的祈祷。

1主啊,
你是我们世世代代的居所。
群山尚未诞生,
大地和世界还未形成,
从亘古到永远,你是上帝。
你叫人归回尘土,
说:“世人啊,归回尘土吧。”
在你眼中,
千年如一日,又如夜里的一更。
你像急流一般把世人冲走,
叫他们如梦消逝。
他们像清晨的嫩草,
清晨还生机盎然,
傍晚就凋谢枯萎。
你的怒气使我们灭亡,
你的愤怒使我们战抖。
你知道我们的罪恶,
对我们隐秘的罪了如指掌。
我们活在你的烈怒之下,
一生就像一声叹息飞逝而去。
10 我们一生七十岁,
强壮的可活八十岁,
但人生最美好的时光也充满劳苦和愁烦,
生命转瞬即逝,
我们便如飞而去。
11 谁明白你愤怒的威力?
有谁因为明白你的烈怒而对你心存敬畏呢?
12 求你教导我们明白人生有限,
使我们做有智慧的人。
13 耶和华啊,我还要苦候多久呢?
求你怜悯你的仆人。
14 求你在清晨以慈爱来满足我们,
使我们一生欢喜歌唱。
15 你使我们先前经历了多少苦难和不幸的岁月,
求你也赐给我们多少欢乐的岁月。
16 求你让仆人们看见你的作为,
让我们的后代看见你的威荣。
17 愿主——我们的上帝恩待我们,
使我们所做的亨通,
使我们所做的亨通。
