I loathe it

Now, therefore, O Yahweh, take, I pray thee, my life from me, - for it were better for me, to die, than, to live.
Let me alone
Are not my days, few? - then forbear, and set me aside, that I may brighten up for a little;
Look sway from him, that he may rest, Till he shall pay off, as a hireling, his day.

Seeing there are things in abundance which make vanity abound, what profit hath man?
