Ecclesiastes 12:5 — The New International Version (NIV)

and the grasshopper drags itself along

and desire no longer is stirred.

Then people go to their eternal home

and mourners go about the streets.

Remember him before you become fearful of falling and worry about danger in the streets; before your hair turns white like an almond tree in bloom, and you drag along without energy like a dying grasshopper, and the caperberry no longer inspires sexual desire. Remember him before you near the grave, your everlasting home, when the mourners will weep at your funeral.

And of terrors in the way;

When the almond tree blossoms,

The grasshopper is a burden,

And desire fails.

For man goes to his eternal home,

And the mourners go about the streets.

and will be afraid to go for a walk.

Your appetite will be gone.

Then you will go to your everlasting home,

and people will go to your funeral.

and mourners will walk around in the street;

And those who sob over the dead will walk around in the streets.
