A Prayer of Moses to God:
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.
