3 You turn man back to dust, And say, “Return, O children of men.”
4 For a thousand years in Your eyes Are like yesterday that has past, Or like a watch in the night.
5 You have swept them away, They are as a sleep, Like grass that springs up in the morning.
6 In the morning it flourishes and springs up, At evening it is cut down and withered.
7 For we have been consumed by Your displeasure, And by Your wrath we are alarmed.
8 You have set our crookednesses before You, Our secret sin in the light of Your face.
9 For all our days have passed away in Your wrath, We spend our years like a whisper.

13 Return, O יהוה (Yahweh)! How long? And be sorry for Your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with Your loving-commitment, And let us sing for joy all our days!
15 Give us joy according to The days You have afflicted us, The years we have seen evil.
16 Reveal Your work to Your servants, And Your splendour to their children.
17 And let the pleasantness Of יהוה (Yahweh)our Elohim be upon us, And confirm the work of our hands for us; O confirm the work of our hands!
