Job 14:10   But man dieth, and is laid low: Yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?
Job 14:11   As the waters fail from the sea, And the river wasteth and drieth up;

Job 14:17   My transgression is sealed up in a bag, And thou fastenest up mine iniquity.

Job 14:19   The waters wear the stones; The overflowings thereof wash away the dust of the earth: So thou destroyest the hope of man.
Job 14:20   Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth; Thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away.
Job 14:21   His sons come to honor, and he knoweth it not; And they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them.
