The Dilemma of Silence


I love the Psalms

Reading:Psalm 39:1-5
For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
I said, “I will watch my ways

So I remained utterly silent,
not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased;
my heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned;
then I spoke with my tongue:
“Show me, LORD, my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
even those who seem secure
(NIV).*
