And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
1 Samuel 2:6
The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.
All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;
Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.
1 Chronicles 29:15
For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.
(For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)
Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.
He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?
For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
Mine age is departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd's tent: I have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me.
