For all our days have declined in Your fury;
We have finished our years like a sigh.
So He brought their days to an end in futility
And their years in sudden terror.
“Behold, You have made my days as handbreadths,
And my lifetime as nothing in Your sight;
Surely every man at his best is a mere breath. Selah.
For a thousand years in Your sight
Are like yesterday when it passes by,
Or as a watch in the night.
