But man dies and is laid low;1 he breathes his last and is no more.211
As water disappears from the sea or a riverbed becomes parched and dry,312
so man lies down and does not rise;4 till the heavens are no more,5 men will not awake or be roused from their sleep.613
"If only you would hide me in the gravea7 and conceal me till your anger has passed!8 If only you would set me a time and then remember9 me!1014
If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my hard service11 I will wait for my renewalb12 to come.
