The Wisdom of Psalms - Psalm 39

The Wisdom of Psalms - Psalm 39

Psalms 39 ESV

I said, “I will guard my ways,

    that I may not sin with my tongue;

I will guard my mouth with a muzzle,

    so long as the wicked are in my presence.”

I was mute and silent;

    I held my peace to no avail,

and my distress grew worse.

    My heart became hot within me.

As I mused, the fire burned;

    then I spoke with my tongue:


Just because we think it doesn't mean we have to say it

Consider your words carefully

Proverbs 12:18 ESV

18 There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.


Psalms 39:3,4,5

3

...Then I spoke with my tongue:

“O Lord, make me know my end

    and what is the measure of my days;

    let me know how fleeting I am!

Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths,

    and my lifetime is as nothing before you.

Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah

Ask God for humility

How important is it?


Psalm 39:6-7 ESV

    Surely a man goes about as a shadow!

Surely for nothing they are in turmoil;

    man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather!

“And now, O Lord, for what do I wait?

    My hope is in you.

Trust God

Psalm 39:8-11 ESV

Deliver me from all my transgressions.

    Do not make me the scorn of the fool!

I am mute; I do not open my mouth,

    for it is you who have done it.

10 

Remove your stroke from me;

    I am spent by the hostility of your hand.

11 

When you discipline a man

    with rebukes for sin,

you consume like a moth what is dear to him;

    surely all mankind is a mere breath! Selah


Accept responsibility

Psalm 39:12-13 ESV

12 

“Hear my prayer, O Lord,

    and give ear to my cry;

    hold not your peace at my tears!

For I am a sojourner with you,

    a guest, like all my fathers.

13 

Look away from me, that I may smile again,

    before I depart and am no more!”
