"Behold, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my lifetime as nothing in Your sight; Surely every man at his best is a mere breath. Selah.
"With reproofs You chasten a man for iniquity; You consume as a moth what is precious to him; Surely every man is a mere breath. Selah.
Man is like a mere breath; His days are like a passing shadow.
"Remember that my life is but breath; My eye will not again see good.
"I waste away; I will not live forever Leave me alone, for my days are but a breath.
The LORD knows the thoughts of man, That they are a mere breath.
