1

I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

2

I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.

3

My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spoke I with my tongue,

4

LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am.

5

Behold, you have made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before you: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.

6

Surely every man walks in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heaps up riches, and knows not who shall gather them.

7

And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in you.

8

Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.

9

I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because you did it.

10

Remove your stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of yours hand.

11

When you with rebukes do correct man for iniquity, you make his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.

12

Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not your peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with you, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

13

O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go behind, and be no more.
