Psalms

Why Psalm 90 is not in the least bit depressing

Today I preached on Psalm 90
At first sight this seems like a very depressing Psalm:

  1. Yes, we are consumed by your anger,
    and by your wrath we are terrified.

Not very encouraging. Let's see how it continues...

  1. You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.

...But it gets worse:

  1. All our days pass away under your wrath,
    we finish our years with a moan.

    [literal translation]
  2. The length of our days is seventy years
    or if we have strength, eighty;
    yet their best is but trouble and oppression;
    for they quickly pass and we fly away.
