What is a mortal, that he should be pure? or that righteous should be one born of a woman?
How then shall, a mortal, be just with GOD? Or how shall he be pure who is born of a woman?
Lo! in iniquity, was I brought forth, And, in sin, did my mother conceive me.
Verily, I say unto you - There hath not arisen, among such as are born of women, a greater than John the Immerser, - yet, he that is less in the kingdom of the heavens, is, greater than he.
Of few days
Is there not a warfare to a mortal, upon earth? And, as the days of a hireling, are not his days?
My days, therefore, are swifter than a runner, They have fled, they have seen no good.
And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my sojournings, have been a hundred and thirty years, - Few and evil, have been the days of the years of my life, neither have they attained unto the days of the years of the lives of my fathers, in the days of their sojournings.
Lo! as hand-breadths, hast thou granted my days, and my life-time, is as nothing before thee, - Surely, a mere breath, are all men, even such as stand firm. Selah.
