Job 14:5-7 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

You decide how long anyone will live.
    You have established the number of his months.
    You have set a limit to the number of his days.
So look away from him. Leave him alone.
    Let him put in his time like a hired worker.

“At least there is hope for a tree.
    If it’s cut down, it will begin to grow again.
    New branches will appear on it.

Job 14:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

A person’s days are determined;
    you have decreed the number of his months
    and have set limits he cannot exceed.
So look away from him and let him alone,
    till he has put in his time like a hired laborer.

“At least there is hope for a tree:
    If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
    and its new shoots will not fail.
