90:1 A Prayer of Moses the man of God. L-rd, Thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations.

90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God.

90:3 Thou turnest man to contrition; and sayest: 'Return, ye children of men.'

90:4 For a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep; in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

90:6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

90:7 For we are consumed in Thine anger, and by Thy wrath are we hurried away.

90:8 Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee, our secret sins in the light of Thy countenance.

90:9 For all our days are passed away in Thy wrath; we bring our years to an end as a tale that is told.

90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten, or even by reason of strength fourscore years; yet is their pride but travail and vanity; for it is speedily gone, and we fly away.

90:11 Who knoweth the power of Thine anger, and Thy wrath according to the fear that is due unto Thee?

90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.

90:13 Return, O the Lord; how long? And let it repent Thee concerning Thy servants.

90:14 O satisfy us in the morning with Thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

90:15 Make us glad according to the days wherein Thou hast afflicted us, according to the years wherein we have seen evil.

90:16 Let Thy work appear unto Thy servants, and Thy glory upon their children.

90:17 And let the graciousness of the L-rd our God be upon us; establish Thou also upon us the work of our hands; yea, the work of our hands establish Thou it.
