Job 14:5-7 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
5 A person’s days are determined;
you have decreed the number of his months
and have set limits he cannot exceed.
6 So look away from him and let him alone,
till he has put in his time like a hired labourer.
7 ‘At least there is hope for a tree:
if it is cut down, it will sprout again,
and its new shoots will not fail.
