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.
