Job 14:5-7 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Since his days are determined,
    and the number of his months is with thee,
    and thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass,
look away from him, and desist,[a]
    that he may enjoy, like a hireling, his day.

“For there is hope for a tree,
    if it be cut down, that it will sprout again,
    and that its shoots will not cease.

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.
