Job 14:1-7 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 "How frail is humanity! How short is life, and how full of trouble! 2 Like a flower, we blossom for a moment and then wither. Like the shadow of a passing cloud, we quickly disappear. 3 Must you keep an eye on such a frail creature and demand an accounting from me? 4 Who can create purity in one born impure? No one! 5 You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer. 6 So give us a little rest, won't you? Turn away your angry stare. We are like hired hands, so let us finish the task you have given us." 7 "If a tree is cut down, there is hope that it will sprout again and grow new branches.
