A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.
 Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
 Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
 You return man to dust
and say, “Return, O children of man!”
 For a thousand years in your sight
are but as yesterday when it is past,
or as a watch in the night.
 You sweep them away as with a flood; they are like a dream,
like grass that is renewed in the morning:
 in the morning it flourishes and is renewed;
in the evening it fades and withers.
 For we are brought to an end by your anger;
by your wrath we are dismayed.
 You have set our iniquities before you,
our secret sins in the light of your presence.
 For all our days pass away under your wrath;
we bring our years to an end like a sigh.
 The years of our life are seventy,
or even by reason of strength eighty;
yet their span is but toil and trouble;
they are soon gone, and we fly away.
 Who considers the power of your anger,
and your wrath according to the fear of you?
 So teach us to number our days
that we may get a heart of wisdom.
 Return, O LORD! How long?
Have pity on your servants!
 Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
and for as many years as we have seen evil.
 Let your work be shown to your servants,
and your glorious power to their children.
 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands! (ESV)
New City Catechism Q. 7. http://newcitycatechism.com/new-city-catechism/#7
 The plans of the heart belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.
 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
but the LORD weighs the spirit.
 Commit your work to the LORD,
and your plans will be established.
 The LORD has made everything for its purpose,
even the wicked for the day of trouble.
 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the LORD;
be assured, he will not go unpunished.
 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the LORD one turns away from evil.
 When a man’s ways please the LORD,
he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
 Better is a little with righteousness
than great revenues with injustice.
 The heart of man plans his way,
but the LORD establishes his steps. (ESV)
