Psalm 39:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
4 my heart smolders within me.
In my sighing a fire blazes up,
and I break into speech:
5 Lord, let me know my end, the number of my days,
that I may learn how frail I am.
6 To be sure, you establish the expanse of my days;
indeed, my life is as nothing before you.
Every man is but a breath.
