For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
2 Kings 19:26
And, their inhabitants, being powerless, were overthrown and put to shame, - they became grass of the field, and young herbage, grass on housetops, and seed withered before it came up.
For, like grass, soon shall they wither, and, like green herbage, shall they fade.
Thou hast snatched them away, A sleep, do they become, In the morning, they are like grass that shooteth up,
When the lawless do thrive like grass, And all the workers of iniquity have blossomed, It is that they may be destroyed for ever.
Smitten like herbage, so is my heart dried up, For I have forgotten to eat my food.
As for man, like grass, are his days, Like the blossom of the field, so, doth he blossom;
Let them become like the grass of housetops, which, before it is pulled up, hath withered;
A voice saying Cry! And one said - What should I cry? All flesh, is grass, And, all the grace thereof, like the flower of the field:
Whereas the rich, in his being brought low, - because, as a flower of grass, he will pass away;
Men who are not versed in the morrow - of what sort your life will be ; for ye are, a vapour - for a little, appearing, then, just disappearing!
1 John 2:17
And, the world, passeth away, and the coveting thereof, but, he that doeth the will of God, endureth unto times age-abiding.
