And He said to Adam, “Because you listened to your wife’s voice and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘Do not eat from it’:The ground is cursed because of you.
You will eat from it by means of painful labor
all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field. You will eat bread by the sweat of your brow
until you return to the ground,
since you were taken from it.
For you are dust,
and you will return to dust.”

Psalm 90:3-10

You return mankind to the dust,
saying, “Return, descendants of Adam.” For in Your sight a thousand years
are like yesterday that passes by,
like a few hours of the night. You end their lives; they sleep.
They are like grass that grows in the morning—read more.
in the morning it sprouts and grows;
by evening it withers and dries up. For we are consumed by Your anger;
we are terrified by Your wrath. You have set our unjust ways before You,
our secret sins in the light of Your presence. For all our days ebb away under Your wrath;
we end our years like a sigh. Our lives last seventy years
or, if we are strong, eighty years.
Even the best of them are struggle and sorrow;
indeed, they pass quickly and we fly away.
