Ecclesiastes 1:14; Psalm 144:4; Job 7:16; Psalm 39:5

14 I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is rvanity1 and a striving after wind.2

pMan is like a breath;

his days are like qa passing rshadow.

16  I rloathe my life; I would not live forever.

sLeave me alone, for my days are ta breath.

Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths,

and cmy lifetime is as nothing before you.

Surely dall mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah
