Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
What is man that he should be pure, or one born of woman, that he should be righteous?
How then can a human being be righteous before God? How can one born of a woman be pure?
Look, I was guilty of sin from birth, a sinner the moment my mother conceived me.
"I tell you the truth, among those born of women, no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he is.
Of few days
"Does not humanity have hard service on earth? Are not their days also like the days of a hired man?
"My days are swifter than a runner, they speed by without seeing happiness.
Jacob said to Pharaoh, "All the years of my travels are 130. All the years of my life have been few and painful; the years of my travels are not as long as those of my ancestors."
Look, you make my days short-lived, and my life span is nothing from your perspective. Surely all people, even those who seem secure, are nothing but vapor.
