Eternal God and mortal man
A Prayer Deut. 33:1of Moses the man of God.
Lord, Ezek. 11:16thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
Prov. 8:25Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
Thou turnest man to destruction;
And sayest, Gen. 3:19Return, ye children of men.
2 Pet. 3:8For a thousand years in thy sight
Are but as yesterday when it is past,
And as a watch in the night.
Thou carriest them away as with a flood; Ps. 73:20they are as a sleep:
In the morning Is. 40:6they are like grass which groweth up.
In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up;
In the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
For we are consumed by thine anger,
And by thy wrath are we troubled.
Ps. 50:21Thou hast set our iniquities before thee,
Our Ps. 19:12secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
For all our days are passed away in thy wrath:
We spend our years as a tale that is told.
The days of our years are threescore years and ten;
And if by reason of strength they be fourscore years,
Yet is their strength labour and sorrow;
For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Who knoweth the power of thine anger?
Even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
Ps. 39:4So teach us to number our days,
That we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Return, O Lord, how long?
And let it Deut. 32:36;Ps. 135:14repent thee concerning thy servants.
O satisfy us early with thy mercy;
Ps. 85:6That we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us,
And the years wherein we have seen evil.
Let Hab. 3:2thy work appear unto thy servants,
And thy glory unto their children.
Ps. 27:4And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us:
And Is. 26:12establish thou the work of our hands upon us;
Yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
The security of the godly
