Now my days are swifter than a post
Or "than a runner"
like a shadow, or a dream, or a tale that is told:
they see no
or he saw, perceived, or enjoyed no good in them; not but that he did see and enjoy much good, even much temporal good, which is what is intended; but this was no sooner had than it was taken away, that it was as if it had never been; the evil days of trouble and sorrow, in which he had no pleasure, came so quick upon him.
