PSALM 39 Prayer for Wisdom and Forgiveness

PSALM 39

Prayer for Wisdom and Forgiveness


Psalm 39:1 I said, “I will guard my ways, that I may not sin with my tongue; I will bridle  my mouth, so long as the wicked are in my presence.”


Psalm 39:2 I was mute and silent, I held my peace to no avail; my distress grew worse,


Psalm 39:3 my heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue:


Psalm 39:4 “LORD, let me know my end, and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is!


Psalm 39:5 Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing in your sight. Surely every man stands as a mere breath!


Psalm 39:6 Surely man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nought are they in turmoil; man heaps up, and knows not who will gather!


Psalm 39:7 “And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.


Psalm 39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions. Make me not the scorn of the fool!


Psalm 39:9 I am silent, I do not open my mouth; for it is you who have done it.


Psalm 39:10 Remove your stroke from me; I am spent by the blows  of your hand.


Psalm 39:11 When you chasten man with rebukes for sin, you consume like a moth what is dear to him; surely every man is a mere breath!


Psalm 39:12 “Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry; hold not your peace at my tears! For I am your passing guest, a sojourner, like all my fathers.


Psalm 39:13 Look away from me, that I may know gladness, before I depart and be no more!”
