018:014:001
Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.


018:014:002
He cometh forth like a flower,
and is cut down:
he fleeth also as a shadow,
and continueth not.


018:014:003
And doth thou open thine eyes upon such an one,
and bringest me into judgment with thee?


018:014:004
Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?
not one.


018:014:005
Seeing his days are determined,
the number of his months are with thee,
thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;


018:014:006
Turn from him,
that he may rest,
till he shall accomplish,
as an hireling,
his day.


018:014:007
For there is hope of a tree,
if it be cut down,
that it will sprout again,
and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.


018:014:008
Though the root thereof wax old in the earth,
and the stock thereof die in the ground;


018:014:009
Yet through the scent of water it will bud,
and bring forth boughs like a plant.


018:014:010
But man dieth,
and wasteth away:
yea,
man giveth up the ghost,
and where is he?


018:014:011
As the waters fail from the sea,
and the flood decayeth and drieth up:


018:014:012
So man lieth down,
and riseth not:
till the heavens be no more,
they shall not awake,
nor be raised out of their sleep.


018:014:013
O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave,
that thou wouldest keep me secret,
until thy wrath be past,
that thou wouldest appoint me a set time,
and remember me!


018:014:014
If a man die,
shall he live again?
all the days of my appointed time will I wait,
till my change come.


018:014:015
Thou shalt call,
and I will answer thee:
thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.


018:014:016
For now thou numberest my steps:
dost thou not watch over my sin?


018:014:017
My transgression is sealed up in a bag,
and thou sewest up mine iniquity.


018:014:018
And surely the mountains falling cometh to nought,
and the rock is removed out of his place.


018:014:019
The waters wear the stones:
thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth;
and thou destroyest the hope of man.


018:014:020
Thou prevailest for ever against him,
and he passeth:
thou changest his countenance,
and sendest him away.


018:014:021
His sons come to honour,
and he knoweth it not;
and they are brought low,
but he perceiveth it not of them.


018:014:022
But his flesh upon him shall have pain,
and his soul within him shall mourn.
