turn and have compassion

Psalm 90:12-17 (JDV)

Psalm 90:12 Teach us to count our days so that we may develop a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:13 Yahveh – how long? Turn and have compassion for your servants.
Psalm 90:14 Satisfy us in the morning with your covenant faithfulness so that we may shout with joy and be glad all our days.
Psalm 90:15 Make us rejoice for as many days as you have humbled us, for as many years as we have seen adversity.
Psalm 90:16 Let your work be seen by your servants, and your splendor by their children.
Psalm 90:17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us; establish for us what our hands have made – establish what our hands have made!

turn and have compassion

This psalm began by recognizing the permanence of God, and the corresponding impermanence of humanity — mortal and under God’s wrath. It ends with an appeal for God to turn and have compassion. It pleads for God to have compassion for his nation and its children. It asks for a blessing for as long as they had adversity.

It is wise to know that our fate is in God’s hands. His mercy is all we need.
