and ye do not know what shall be tomorrow. For what is your life? Certainly it is a vapour that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
Behold, thou hast made my days as a handbreadth, and my age is as nothing before thee; verily every man that lives is altogether vanity. Selah.
For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away,
And the world passes away and the lust thereof, but he that does the will of God abides for ever.
My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle and are spent without hope.
Now my days are swifter than a post; they fled away, they never saw good.
Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.
and he who is rich, in his low status, because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
But the end of all things is at hand; be ye, therefore, temperate and watch unto prayer.
Thou dost cause them to pass by as the waters of a river; they are as a dream, which is strong in the morning like grass.
My dwelling place has been moved and is removed from me as a shepherd's tent; he has cut off my life like a weaver: he has cut me off with sickness: between the day and the night thou shalt consume me.
