To the choirmaster: to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. I said, "I will guard my ways, that I may not sin with my tongue; I will bridle my mouth, so long as the wicked are in my presence."
I was dumb and silent, I held my peace to no avail; my distress grew worse,
my heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue:
"LORD, let me know my end, and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is!
Behold, thou hast made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing in thy sight. Surely every man stands as a mere breath! [Selah]
Surely man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nought are they in turmoil; man heaps up, and knows not who will gather!
"And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in thee.
Deliver me from all my transgressions. Make me not the scorn of the fool!
I am dumb, I do not open my mouth; for it is thou who hast done it.
Remove thy stroke from me; I am spent by the blows of thy hand.
When thou dost chasten man with rebukes for sin, thou dost consume like a moth what is dear to him; surely every man is a mere breath! [Selah]
"Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears! For I am thy passing guest, a sojourner, like all my fathers.
Look away from me, that I may know gladness, before I depart and be no more!"
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.
Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods!
Thou hast multiplied, O LORD my God, thy wondrous deeds and thy thoughts toward us; none can compare with thee! Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be numbered.
Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire; but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required.
Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;
I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart."
I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD.
I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation; I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.
Do not thou, O LORD, withhold thy mercy from me, let thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness ever preserve me!
For evils have encompassed me without number; my iniquities have overtaken me, till I cannot see; they are more than the hairs of my head; my heart fails me.
Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me! O LORD, make haste to help me!
Let them be put to shame and confusion altogether who seek to snatch away my life; let them be turned back and brought to dishonor who desire my hurt!
Let them be appalled because of their shame who say to me, "Aha, Aha!"
But may all who seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; may those who love thy salvation say continually, "Great is the LORD!"
As for me, I am poor and needy; but the Lord takes thought for me. Thou art my help and my deliverer; do not tarry, O my God!
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. Blessed is he who considers the poor! The LORD delivers him in the day of trouble;
the LORD protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; thou dost not give him up to the will of his enemies.
The LORD sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness thou healest all his infirmities.
As for me, I said, "O LORD, be gracious to me; heal me, for I have sinned against thee!"
My enemies say of me in malice: "When will he die, and his name perish?"
And when one comes to see me, he utters empty words, while his heart gathers mischief; when he goes out, he tells it abroad.
All who hate me whisper together about me; they imagine the worst for me.
They say, "A deadly thing has fastened upon him; he will not rise again from where he lies."
Even my bosom friend in whom I trusted, who ate of my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
But do thou, O LORD, be gracious to me, and raise me up, that I may requite them!
By this I know that thou art pleased with me, in that my enemy has not triumphed over me.
But thou hast upheld me because of my integrity, and set me in thy presence for ever.
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
