15 Make us glad for as many days as you have(Z) afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil.
16 Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children.
17 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!
Psalm 90 English Standard translation
Reading through Psalms online, slowly, came to Number 90 this morning. Amazes me how often, reading Psalms and Proverbs, I feel like I knoe what the people writing it were saying, even though it was thousands of years ago.
Like this passage as well:
- 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[c] is but toil and trouble;
they are soon gone, and we fly away.
ME: IT'S REALLY ENDLESS
For thousands of years humans have tried to put the Spirit into words, so don't take it literally, just get the ... gist of what the words say. Read Psalm 90 here
