What Is the Measure of My Days?

To the choirmaster: to vJeduthun. A Psalm of David.

39  I said, I will wguard my ways,

that I xmay not sin with my tongue;

I will yguard my mouth with a muzzle,

so long as the wicked are in my presence.


xSet a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;

ykeep watch over the door of my lips!


tWhoever guards his mouth preserves his life;

uhe who opens wide his lips vcomes to ruin.


23  cWhoever keeps his mouth and his tongue

dkeeps himself out of etrouble.


26 If anyone thinks he is religious qand does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's rreligion is worthless.


For dwe all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, ehe is a perfect man, fable also to bridle his whole body.


A Living Stone and a Holy People

jSo put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander.


22 bHe committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth.
