Psalm 39:4-6 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Lord, tell me, what will happen to me now?
    Tell me, how long will I live?
    Let me know how short my life really is.
You gave me only a short life.
    Compared to you, my whole life is nothing.
The life of every human is like a cloud that quickly disappears. Selah

Our life is like an image in a mirror.[a]
    We rush through life collecting things,
    but we don’t know who will get them after we die.
