Deliver me from all mine offences and make me not a rebuke unto the foolish.

I became dumb, and opened not my mouth: for it was thy doing.

Take thy plague away from me I am even confumed by means of thy heavy hand.

When thou with rebukes doft chaften man for fin, thou makeft his beauty to confume away, like as it were a moth fret ting a garment : every man therefore is but vanity.

Hear my prayer, O Lord, and with thine ears confider my calling: hold not thy peace at my tears.

For I am a ftranger with thee and a fojourner, as all my fathers were.

For we confume away in thy displeasure and are afraid at thy wrathful indignation.

Thou haft fet our misdeeds before thee: and our fecret fins in the light of thy countenance.

For when thou art angry, all our days are gone: we bring our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told.

The days of our age are threefcore years and ten, and though men be fo ftrong,that they come to fourfcore years: yet is their ftrength then but labour and forrow; fo foon paffeth it away, and we are gone.

As foon as thou scattereft them, they are even as a fleep: and fade away suddenly like the grass.

Comfort us again, now after the time thou that haft plagued us: and for the years wherein we have fuffered adverfity.
