Psalms 90

Coverdale(i) 1 Lorde, thou art oure refuge from one generacion to another. 2 Before the mountaynes were brought forth, or euer the earth & the worlde were made, thou art God from euerlastinge and worlde withoute ende. 3 Thou turnest man to destruccion, Agayne, thou sayest: come agayne ye children of men. 4 For a thousande yeares in thy sight are but as yesterdaye that is past, and like as it were a night watch. 5 As soone as thou scatrest them, they are euen as a slepe, and fade awaye sodenly like the grasse. 6 In the mornynge it is grene and groweth vp, but in the euenynge it is cutt downe and wythered. 7 For we consume awaye in thy displeasure, and are afrayed at thy wrothfull indignacion. 8 Thou settest oure mi?dedes before the, and oure secrete synnes in the light of thy countenaunce. 9 For when thou art angrie, all or dayes are gone, we brynge or yeares to an ende, as it were a tayle that is tolde. 10 The dayes of oure age are iij. score yeares & ten: & though men be so stronge that they come to iiij. score yeares, yet is their strength then but laboure and sorowe: so soone passeth it awaye, & we are gone. 11 But who regardeth the power of thy wrath, thy fearfull & terrible displeasure? 12 O teach vs to nombre oure dayes, that we maye applie oure hertes vnto wy?dome. 13 Turne the agayne (o LORDE) at the last, and be gracious vnto thy seruauntes. 14 O satisfie vs with thy mercy, and that soone: so shal we reioyse and be glad all the dayes of oure life. 15 Comforte vs agayne, now after the tyme that thou hast plaged vs, and for the yeares wherin we haue suffred aduersite. 16 Shewe thy seruauntes thy worke, & their children thy glory. 17 And the glorious maiesty of the LORDE oure God be vpon vs: O prospere thou the worke of oure hondes vpon vs, o prospere thou oure hondy worke.
