Discover Psalm 39 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
I said: I will keep my ways,
so that I do not sin with my tongue;
I will guard my mouth with a bridle,
while the wicked is before me.
I fell silent with silence; I kept silent even about the good,
and my pain worsened.
My heart burned within me;
fire burned in my reflections,
and so I spoke with my tongue:
Let me know, O Lord, my end
and how much is the measure of my days;
I know how fragile I am.
Behold, you gave my days a short term,
and my age is as nothing before you;
certainly every man who lives is complete vanity. Selah
Certainly, like a shadow man walks;
certainly in vain he toils;
accumulates, and does not know who will collect.
And now, Lord, what will I wait for?
My hope is in you.
Deliver me from all my transgressions;
do not make me a derision of the fool.
I fell silent; I didn’t open my mouth,
because you did.
Remove your scourge from me;
I am consumed under the blows of your hand.
With penalties for sin you correct a man,
and destroy what is most dear to him like moth;
indeed, every man is vanity. Selah
Hear my prayer, O Lord, and hear my cry.
Do not be silent before my tears,
because I am a stranger to you,
and a pilgrim, like all my parents.
Avert your gaze from me, and I will take strength
before I go away and cease to be.
