Certainly Every Man At His Best State Is But Vapor


Psalm 39:1-13 NKJV
I said, “I will guard my ways, Lest I sin with my tongue; I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle, While the wicked are before me.”
[2] I was mute with silence, I held my peace even from good; And my sorrow was stirred up.
[3] My heart was hot within me; While I was musing, the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue:


[4] “LORD, make me to know my end, And what is the measure of my days, That I may know how frail I am.
[5] Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my age is as nothing before You; Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. Selah


[6] Surely every man walks about like a shadow; Surely they busy themselves in vain; He heaps up riches, And does not know who will gather them.


[7] “And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you.


[8] Deliver me from all my transgressions; Do not make me the reproach of the foolish.
[9] I was mute, I did not open my mouth, Because it was You who did it.


[10] Remove Your plague from me; I am consumed by the blow of Your hand. [11] When with rebukes You correct man for iniquity, You make his beauty melt away like a moth; Surely every man is vapor. Selah


[12] “Hear my prayer, O LORD, And give ear to my cry; Do not be silent at my tears; For I am a stranger with You, A sojourner, as all my fathers were.
[13] Remove Your gaze from me, that I may regain strength, Before I go away and am no more.”
