Psalm 90:7 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Psalm 90:7We are consumed by thine anger - Death had not entered into the world, if men had not fallen from God.

By thy wrath are we troubled - Pain, disease, and sickness are so many proofs of our defection from original rectitude. The anger and wrath of God are moved against all sinners. Even in protracted life we consume away, and only seem to live in order to die.
