Psalms Scripture Reading - Psalm 39:1-5

Psalm 39:1-5 Holman Christian Standard Bible

For the choir director, for Jeduthun. A Davidic psalm.

I said, “I will guard my ways

so that I may not sin with my tongue;

I will guard my mouth with a muzzle

as long as the wicked are in my presence.”

I was speechless and quiet;

I kept silent, even from speaking good,

and my pain intensified.

My heart grew hot within me;

as I mused, a fire burned.

I spoke with my tongue:

“Lord, reveal to me the end of my life

and the number of my days.

Let me know how short-lived I am.

You, indeed, have made my days short in length,

and my life span as nothing in Your sight.

Yes, every mortal man is only a vapor. Selah
