The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

90:10 threescore years and ten. Moses contrasts the seventy years of a normal life span in his day (even though he himself providentially lived 120 years) with the thousand-year life-span of men before the Flood (Psalm 90:4). It is remarkable that, after over three thousand more years of human history after Moses, including the great medical advances of recent centuries, seventy to eighty years is still the normal life-span.
