Psalm 90

1  Lord, you have been our refuge 
   from one generation to another.
2  Before the mountains were brought forth,
      or the earth and the world were formed, 
   from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3  You turn us back to dust and say: 
   ‘Turn back, O children of earth.’
4  For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday, 
   which passes like a watch in the night.
5  You sweep them away like a dream; 
   they fade away suddenly like the grass.
6  In the morning it is green and flourishes; 
   in the evening it is dried up and withered.
13  Turn again, O Lord; how long will you delay? 
   Have compassion on your servants.
14  Satisfy us with your loving-kindness in the morning, 
   that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15  Give us gladness for the days you have afflicted us, 
   and for the years in which we have seen adversity.
16  Show your servants your works, 
   and let your glory be over their children.
17  May the gracious favour of the Lord our God be upon us; 
   prosper our handiwork; O prosper the work of our hands.

The Psalms

BOOK I

(Psalms 1-41)

Psalm 1

The Two Ways


1 Happy are those
   who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
   or sit in the seat of scoffers;
2 but their delight is in the law of the Lord,
   and on his law they meditate day and night.
3 They are like trees
   planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
   and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.


4 The wicked are not so,
   but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgement,
   nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
   but the way of the wicked will perish.
