PS 89:1  A prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, thou hast been our refuge from generation to generation.

PS 89:2  Before the mountains were made, or the earth and the world was formed; from eternity and to eternity thou art God.

PS 89:3  Turn not man away to be brought low: and thou hast said: Be converted, O ye sons of men.

PS 89:4  For a thousand years in thy sight are as yesterday, which is past. And as a watch in the night,

PS 89:5  things that are counted nothing, shall their years be.

PS 89:6  In the morning man shall grow up like grass; in the morning he shall flourish and pass away: in the evening he shall fall, grow dry, and wither.

PS 89:7  For in thy wrath we have fainted away: and are troubled in thy indignation.

PS 89:8  Thou hast set our iniquities before thy eyes: our life in the light of thy countenance.

PS 89:9  For all our days are spent; and in thy wrath we have fainted away. Our years shall be considered spider:

PS 89:10  the days of our years in them are threescore and ten years. But if in the strong they be fourscore years: and what is more of them is labour and sorrow. For mildness is come upon us: and we shall be corrected.

PS 89:11  Who knoweth the power of thy anger, and for thy fear

PS 89:12  can number thy wrath? So make thy right hand known: and men learned in heart, in wisdom.

PS 89:13  Return, O Lord, how long? and be entreated in favour of thy servants.

PS 89:14  We are filled in the morning with thy mercy: and we have rejoiced, and are delighted all our days.

PS 89:15  We have rejoiced for the days in which thou hast humbled us: for the years in which we have seen evils.

PS 89:16  Look upon thy servants and upon their works: and direct their children.

PS 89:17  And let the brightness of the Lord our God be upon us: and direct thou the works of our hands over us; yea, the work of our hands do thou direct.
