“O Lord, (A)make me know my end
    and what is the measure of my days;
    let me know how fleeting I am!
Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths,
    and (B)my lifetime is as nothing before you.
Surely (C)all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah
    Surely a man (D)goes about as a shadow!
Surely for nothing[a] they are in turmoil;
    man (E)heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather!
