PINKER, Aron. The famous but difficult Psalm 90:10. Old testam. essays [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.2, pp.497-522. ISSN 2312-3621. http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2015/V28N2A15.
Application of standard text-critical tools to the difficult Ps 90:10 results in the interpretation: The days of our vigor [are] seventy years, [or] Our years with might [are] eighty years, And their pride [is] vexation and sorrow. We fade quickly, and we rattle . . . . It is being claimed that the last colon of MT is a minor textual corruption of the original -•• ••- •---•, and the rattle is the typical death groan.
