The j number of his months is with You;
And his limits You have ▼
▼ Lit madeset so that he cannot pass.
6 l “Turn Your gaze from him that he may ▼
▼ Lit ceaserest,
Until he ▼
▼ Lit makes acceptablefulfills his day like a hired man.
7 “For there is hope for a tree,
When it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
And its shoots will not ▼
▼ Or ceasefail.
8 “Though its roots grow old in the ground
And its stump dies in the dry soil,
9 At the scent of water it will flourish
And put forth sprigs like a plant.
10 “But p man dies and lies prostrate.
Man q expires, and where is he?
11 “As r water ▼
▼ Lit disappearsevaporates from the sea,
And a river becomes parched and dried up,
12 So t man lies down and does not rise.
Until the heavens are no longer,
▼ Lit TheyHe will not awake nor be aroused out of ▼
▼ Lit theirhis sleep.
13 “Oh that You would hide me in ▼

18 “But the falling mountain ▼
▼ Lit witherscrumbles away,
And the rock moves from its place;

Its torrents wash away the dust of the earth;
So You ae destroy man’s hope.

You change his appearance and send him away.
21 “His sons achieve honor, but ag he does not know it;
Or they become insignificant, but he does not perceive it.

And he mourns only for himself.”
