But an eroding mountain breaks up, and rock is displaced.
Water wears away boulders; floods carry away soil; you destroy a people's hope.
You overpower them relentlessly, and they die; you change their appearance and send them away.
Their children achieve honor, and they don't know it; their children become insignificant, and they don't see it.
They only feel the pain of their body, and they mourn for themselves.
