Psalm 39

To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.

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 spake 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, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth;

and mine age is as nothing before thee:

verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.

6. Surely every man walketh in a vain shew:

surely they are disquieted in vain:

he heapeth up riches,

and knoweth not who shall gather them.

7. And now, Lord, what wait I for?

my hope is in thee.

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 thou didst it.

10. Remove thy stroke away from me:

I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.

11. When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity,

thou makest 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 thy peace at my tears:

for I am a stranger with thee,

and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

13. O spare me, that I may recover strength,

before I go hence, and be no more.

Psalm 39

For courage to confront any problem head on; for peace of mind; to reveal false testimony and lies.
