  1 I said, I will keep my ways, So that I do not sin with my tongue; I will keep a muzzle on my mouth When the wicked are before me.

  2 I was dumb and silent; I held my peace, even from good; And my pain was stirred up.

  3 My heart was hot within me; While I mused, the fire burned; I spoke with my tongue:

  4 O Jehovah, cause me to know my end, And the measure of my days, what it is. May I know how transient I am.

  5 Behold, You have made my days as mere handbreadths, And my lifetime is as nothing before You; Surely every man at his best is altogether vanity.

  6 Surely man goes about as a semblance; Surely they bustle about in vain: He heaps up riches yet knows not Who will gather them.

  7 And now what am I waiting for, O Lord? My hope - it is in You.

  8 Deliver me from all my transgressions; Do not make me the fool's reproach.

  9 I was dumb; I did not open my mouth; For You have done this.

10 Remove Your plague from me; By the hostility of Your hand I am consumed.

11 With rebukes You chasten a man because of iniquity, And cause what is desirous to him to disappear like a moth. Surely every man is vanity.

12 Hear my prayer, O Jehovah; And give ear to my cry; Do not hold Your peace at my tears. For I am a stranger with You, A sojourner, as all my fathers were.

13 Look away from me, that I may be cheerful, Before I go away and am no more.
