And death rather than my life.

Let me alone; for my days are vanity.

Oh, leave me alone for my few remaining days.

Let me alone,

For my days are but a breath.

Leave me alone, because my days have no meaning.

Leave me alone. My days don’t mean anything to me.

Death rather than my pains.

16 “I waste away; I will not live forever.

Leave me alone, for my days are but a breath.
