are of few days and full of trouble.
like fleeting shadows, they do not endure.
Will you bring them before you for judgment?
you have decreed the number of his months
and have set limits he cannot exceed.
till he has put in his time like a hired laborer.
If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
and its new shoots will not fail.
and its stump die in the soil,
and put forth shoots like a plant.
he breathes his last and is no more.
