Make me to know, Jehovah, mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: I shall know how frail I am.
My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.
1 Chronicles 29:15
For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is no hope of life.
For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, for our days upon earth are a shadow.
And he remembered that they were flesh, a breath that passeth away and cometh not again.
ye who do not know what will be on the morrow, (for what is your life? It is even a vapour, appearing for a little while, and then disappearing,)
And my days are swifter than a runner: they flee away, they see no good.
Are not my days few? cease then and let me alone, that I may revive a little,
1 Samuel 20:3
And David swore again and again, and said, Thy father certainly knows that I have found favour in thy sight: and he has thought, Jonathan shall not know this, lest he be grieved; but truly as Jehovah liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death.

He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down; and he fleeth as a shadow, and continueth not.
My days are like a lengthened-out shadow, and I, I am withered like grass.
A voice saith, Cry. And he saith, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the comeliness thereof as the flower of the field.
