Psalm Chapter 90


Psalm 90King James Version (KJV)

90 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

10 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.

11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.

12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

13 Return, O Lord, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.

17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

That was written before Jesus died for our sins.

Yes it was LFF but before we get off track with our scriptures.....there may be some (not I) who do not believe the Old Testament is for us today. That is an opinion of course.

I thought David wrote Psalm 90 but apparently I am wrong according to Google:

https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=A0LEVjzHnHtX3noAbj8PxQt.;_ylu=X3oDMTByNXM5bzY5BGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMzBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--?qid=20090819112349AAzNsGT&p=who%20was%20the%20author%20of%20Psalm%2090

The answer according to the link was Moses.

Wow! All these years, I thought the Psalms were all written by King David. Apparently they were all recited by King David:

David did write some of the Psalms, and in my Bible, those Psalms are identified accordingly. All the Psalms are about Jesus. There is a small book -- only one paragraph or so for each Psalm, called "Christ in the Psalms," which explains this and opens up the meaning of each and every Psalm. The book is by Henry Patrick Reardon, now an Eastern Orthodox Christian priest. Amazon carries it. It's well worth reading. Each Psalm is about Jesus; each is prophecy.
