PSA 90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the
morning they are like grass which groweth up.
PSA 90:6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is
cut down, and withereth.
PSA 90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a
tale that is told.
PSA 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason
