Psalm 39:6-8 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Doubtless man walketh in a shadow, and disquieteth himself in vain: he heapeth up riches, and cannot tell who shall gather them.

And now Lord, what wait I for? mine hope is even in thee.

Deliver me from all my transgressions, and make me not a rebuke unto the [a]foolish.

Psalm 39:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

“Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;
    in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth
    without knowing whose it will finally be.

“But now, Lord, what do I look for?
    My hope is in you.
Save me from all my transgressions;
    do not make me the scorn of fools.
