The Passion Translation
10 I was dying in the prime of life.
I thought, “Must I leave this world now?
Must I go through the gates of death
and miss out on the rest of my years?”
11 I thought, “I won’t get to see[a] Yah again
in the land of the living.
No longer will I see my friends or family
nor enjoy the company of anyone living on earth.
12 My body is being folded up and taken from me,
taken down like a shepherd’s tent.
He cuts my life short,
as a weaver cuts his cloth from the loom and rolls it up.
From day to night, you bring my life to an end.
- Isaiah 38:11 Or “appear before (in the temple).”
