Psalm 87

1On the holy mount stands the city he founded;

2the Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah

4Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; Philistia too, and Tyre, with Ethiopia—“This one was born there,” they say.

5And of Zion it shall be said, “This one and that one were born in it”; for the Most High himself will establish it.

6The Lord records, as he registers the peoples, “This one was born there.” Selah

7Singers and dancers alike say, “All my springs are in you.”

Psalm 90

1Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.

2Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

3You turn us back to dust, and say, “Turn back, you mortals.”

4For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday when it is past, or like a watch in the night.

5You sweep them away; they are like a dream, like grass that is renewed in the morning;

6in the morning it flourishes and is renewed; in the evening it fades and withers.

7For we are consumed by your anger; by your wrath we are overwhelmed.

8You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance.

9For all our days pass away under your wrath; our years come to an end like a sigh.

10The days of our life are seventy years, or perhaps eighty, if we are strong; even then their span is only toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.

11Who considers the power of your anger? Your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.

12So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart.

13Turn, O Lord! How long? Have compassion on your servants!

14Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

15Make us glad as many days as you have afflicted us, and as many years as we have seen evil.

16Let your work be manifest to your servants, and your glorious power to their children.

17Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands— O prosper the work of our hands!
