About the headline (FAQ)

Translator's notes:
This Latin text is taken from the second half of Psalm 89:12 from the Vulgate Bible (and Psalm 90:12 from the Greek Septuagint Bible). It is the only Psalm text attributed to Moses.
In English, Psalm 90:12 is usually translated from the Hebrew Bible version: "Teach us to number our days..." omitting the first line of this text.
