Psalms 90:9

Context
NETBible

Yes, 1  throughout all our days we experience your raging fury; 2  the years of our lives pass quickly, like a sigh. 3 

XREF

Ps 39:5; Ps 78:33; Ps 90:4

NET © Notes

tn Or “for.”

tn Heb “all our days pass by in your anger.”

tn Heb “we finish our years like a sigh.” In Ezek 2:10 the word הֶגֶה (hegeh) elsewhere refers to a grumbling or moaning sound. Here a brief sigh or moan is probably in view. If so, the simile pictures one’s lifetime as transient. Another option is that the simile alludes to the weakness that characteristically overtakes a person at the end of one’s lifetime. In this case the phrase could be translated, “we end our lives with a painful moan.”
