English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
6 A voice says, "Cry!" And I said,"What shall I cry?" All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. 6 A voice says, "Cry out." And I said, "What shall I cry?" "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the LORD blows on it; surely the people are grass. 7 The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the LORD blows on them. Surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. 8 The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever."
