Psalm 39:5-7 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

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.

So, Lord, what hope do I have?
    You are my hope!
