Job Continues: Death Comes Soon to All
14 “Man who is kborn of a woman
he flees like pa shadow and continues not.
7 “For there is hope for a tree,
if it be cut down, that it will sprout again,
and that its shoots will not cease.
8 Though its root grow old in the earth,
and xits stump die in the soil,
9 yet at the scent of water it will bud
and put out ybranches like a young plant.
10 But a man dies and is laid low;
man breathes his last, and zwhere is he?
11 aAs waters fail from a lake
and a river wastes away and dries up,
12 so a man lies down and rises not again;
till bthe heavens are no more he will not awake
or be croused out of his sleep.
that you would appoint me a set time, and remember me!
14 If a man dies, shall he live again?
till my renewal1 should come.
15 You would icall, and I would answer you;
you would long for the jwork of your hands.
23 “Oh that my words were written!
Oh that they were tinscribed in a book!
24 Oh that with an iron upen and lead
they were engraved in the rock forever!
26 And after my skin has been thus destroyed,
27 whom I shall see for myself,
and my eyes shall behold, and not zanother.
My heart afaints within me!
