Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1Lord Jehovah, you have been a dwelling place for us for a generation of generations.
2Before the mountains would have been brought forth, or ever you would have brought forth the world, or the world had ever been acquired, from eternity unto eternity you are God.
3Because you have turned man unto humility and you have said, "Return children of men".
4Because a thousand years in your eyes is like a day that is finished when it is passed and like a watch of the night.
5Their generations shall be a sleep and at dawn it shall change like a flower
6Which sprouts at dawn and changes and in the evening it withers and dries up.
7Because we are consumed in your wrath and we are agitated by your anger.
8You have set our sins before you, our lifetimes in the light of your face.
9Because all our days are consumed in your passion and our years are spent like spiders.
10The days of our years with them are seventy years, or being stronger. eighty years; most of them are toil and pains, because affliction comes upon us and we are buffeted.
11Who knows the power of your passion and the awesomeness of your passion?
12Teach us the number of our days that we may enter the heart of wisdom.
13Return, Lord Jehovah. How long will you not comfort your Servants?
14Satisfy us at dawn; we shall praise your kindness and rejoice all our days.
15Gladden us, because our wickedness has died, and the years in which we have seen evil are gone.
16Let your works appear to your Servants and your excellence to their children!
17Let the sweetness of Lord Jehovah our God be upon us, because of the works of his hands which he has fashioned for us, and he formed us among the work of his hands!
