Psalm 90:10-12 

New International Version (NIV)

10 Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures;
yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days,
    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

诗篇 90:10-12

Chinese Union Version Modern Punctuation (Simplified) (CUVMPS)

10 我们一生的年日是七十岁,若是强壮可到八十岁,但其中所矜夸的不过是劳苦愁烦;转眼成空,我们便如飞而去。
11 谁晓得你怒气的权势?谁按着你该受的敬畏晓得你的愤怒呢?
12 求你指教我们怎样数算自己的日子,好叫我们得着智慧的心。

詩篇 90:10-12

Chinese Union Version Modern Punctuation (Traditional) (CUVMPT)

10 我們一生的年日是七十歲,若是強壯可到八十歲,但其中所矜誇的不過是勞苦愁煩;轉眼成空,我們便如飛而去。
11 誰曉得你怒氣的權勢?誰按著你該受的敬畏曉得你的憤怒呢?
12 求你指教我們怎樣數算自己的日子,好叫我們得著智慧的心。

Good TV: 每天十分鐘,每天經歷神。金句:求你指教我們怎樣數算自己的日子,好叫我們得著智慧的­心。(詩篇90:12)
◎ 暗嫩是一個被情慾所捆綁的青年人,人沒有辦法否認自己的情感,但是你可以約束自己的行­為,「約束」是一個很榮耀的保護。在暗嫩出事的這個過程裡面,有一個關鍵人物叫約拿達­,他老是出壞主義。今天這個世代充滿著約拿達,我們裡面需要有一個屬靈的分辨力,不被­這個世界包裝的那些汙穢蒙蔽了。
