Job 14:5-7 New English Translation (NET Bible)
5 Since man’s days are determined,
the number of his months is under your control;
you have set his limit and he cannot pass it.
6 Look away from him and let him desist,
until he fulfills his time like a hired man.
The Inevitability of Death
7 “But there is hope for a tree:
If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
and its new shoots will not fail.
