    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 90:16

    Psalm 90:17 They are like the passing grass of the morning;

    In the evening it is cut down and withereth.

    For we are consumed by thine anger,

    And by thy wrath are we troubled.

    Thou hast set our iniquities before thee:

    Our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

    Behold, all our days are passed away in thy wrath,

    We spend our years as a tale that is told.

    Their strength is labor and sorrow;

    It is soon cut off, and we flee away.

    So teach us to number our days

    That we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

    O satisfy us early with thy mercy,

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 90:16

    Let thy work appear unto thy servants - That is, thy gracious work of interposition. Let us see thy power displayed in removing these calamities, and in restoring to us the days of health and prosperity.

    And thy glory unto their children - The manifestation of thy character; the display of thy goodness, of thy power, and thy grace. Let this spreading and wasting evil be checked and removed, so that our children may live, and may have occasion to celebrate thy goodness, and to record the wonders of thy love.
