3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and say

est, Return, ye children of men. 4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as

yesterday when it is past, and as a i

watch - | in: the night. 5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood;

they are as a sleep; in the morning they

are like grass which | grow-: -eth | up. 6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth

up; in the evening it is cut down, - |

and — | withereth. 7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by hy wrath | are

ve | troubled. 8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our

secret sins in the light . of thy - 1 countenance.

9 For all our days are passed away in thy

wrath: we spend our years, as a | tale

that is | told. 10 The days of our years are threescore years

and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut | off ·

and we fly •a- -way. 11. Who knoweth the power of thine anger ?

even according to thy fear, / so is thy |

wrath. 12 So teach us to number our days, that we

may ap- | -ply · our | hearts •'unto | wisdom.

LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, I

0. Most High. 2 To shew forth thy loving-kindness in the

morning, and thy | faithful-• -ness | eve

-ry night. 3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon

the psaltery; upon the harp with a sol- .

-emn sound. 4 For thou, O LORD, hast made me glad through

thy work: I will triumph in the works ·

of thy - | hands. 5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy

thoughts are ver- • -y | deep. 6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a

| fool · under-| -stand - this. 7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and

when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be de- | -stroyed •

for ever. 8 But thou, LORD, art most | high · for ev

| enemies · shall perish. 10 All the workers of in- | -iqui- .-ty | shall ·

be scattered.
