Discussion for Psalms 90

  • Brianna
    Verse 10 is hard to understand with the way they use fourscores. However, doing some research threescores is equal to about 70 years, and fourscores is about 80. What is amazing is that this is pretty spot on for he life span of what we live even today, assuming a "normal" life.
    The scripture also highlights how our lives are filled with sorrow. May we all pray for God's kingdom to come!
  • MARGARET BAILIE
    Our God - our help throughout our life Our Father - Holy is your name we your children are to to holy too - WE are children of the light OUR GOD is our help for years yet unknown He is our shelter when we are driven to wits end HE offers us an eternal home We rest secure protected by his loving arms The creator of the universe -who put time into motion says "Your days are in my hands - Fear not"
  • Joyce Ballentine
    We complain about waiting on God.He also tells us in Psalm 46:10, to be still and know that I am God.It seems like it take years for God to answer prayers, but this scripture explains to us that one day is like a thousand years to God.This shows us that God is a on time God and that we are not on our timing, but we are on His timing.We seem to jump the gun on things we ask for and then after He give it to us we don't appreciate it.On today wait on God's timing and even if it takes years for Him to answer remember a day is like a thousand years to Him.

  • Pst olanlege for verse 14
    Early mercy is mercy someone receives at the appropriate time that is needed.
  • The footnote in my King James says that this passage, was not a mandate of a person 's life spand, at all. That Moses, who wrote this Psalm, was asking God why some had died, due to age, tired from the journey-heat-etc....and others lived longer. Today I heard a message on this verse, which the teacher said some died because of sin...that God was angry and did not allow them to cross Jordon. I had always thought the Scripture taught that none of those on that journey, got sick or grew old...not even their clothes wore out. Which makes not sense, except for another miracle, seeing they were 40 years on that journey! I have tried to look this up and find out where or how I ever got that...or what it actually says...but have been unable to find it. I would like to have others ' input on this. Thank you for your time and God bless.
