This Psalm begins with LORD you have been our dwelling place in all generations.  I would ask you where you live. If this attitude would have prevailed in Israel they would not have gone into captivity. The second verse said, “Before everything was created you are God.  You turn men to destruction.”  This began when Adam and Eve ate from the tree but from that time God gave the way back to Himself.
Now I find this thousand years as a day or as yesterday.  I find it interesting God’s claim through Paul in Ephesians 1:4 that we are chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world.  Then we have thousands of years until eternity in Revelation 22.
In verse 9 we are told that we finish our years like a sigh.  Then our years are seventy and if by reason of strength eighty.  I am not very strong at 83.  Then we are to ask God to teach us to number our days so we can apply our hearts to wisdom.  Then the last verse says, “Let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us and establish the work of our hands.”
