James 4:14
whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. What is your life? For ye are a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen in your life tomorrow. [What is secure in your life?] You are merely a vapor [like a puff of smoke or a wisp of steam from a cooking pot] that is visible for a little while and then vanishes [into thin air].
Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen tomorrow. What is the nature of your life? You are [really] but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears [into thin air].
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
You don’t really know about tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for only a short while before it vanishes.
You don’t even know if you will be alive tomorrow! For all you are is a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears.
What do you know about tomorrow? How can you be so sure about your life? It is nothing more than mist that appears for only a little while before it disappears.
ye who do not know what will be on the morrow, ([for] what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, appearing for a little while, and then disappearing,)
who do not know the thing of  tomorrow! What is your life? For you are a vapor appearing for a little while, then indeed disappearing!—
Whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow.
You don’t know what will happen tomorrow. Your life is like a fog. You can see it for a short time, but then it goes away.
yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
But you do not know what will happen tomorrow! Your life is like a ·mist [vapor; puff of smoke]. ·You can see it [It appears] for a short time, but then it ·goes away [vanishes; Prov. 27:1].
(And yet ye cannot tell what shall be tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and afterward vanisheth away.)
You don’t know what will happen tomorrow. What is life? You are a mist that is seen for a moment and then disappears.
You don't even know what your life tomorrow will be! You are like a puff of smoke, which appears for a moment and then disappears.
You don’t even know what tomorrow will bring—what your life will be! For you are like smoke that appears for a little while, then vanishes.
But you do not know what will happen tomorrow! Your life is like a mist. You can see it for a short time, but then it goes away.
You do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
Just a moment, now, you who say, “We are going to such-and-such a city today or tomorrow. We shall stay there a year doing business and make a profit”! How do you know what will happen even tomorrow? What, after all, is your life? It is like a puff of smoke visible for a little while and then dissolving into thin air. Your remarks should be prefaced with, “If it is the Lord’s will, we shall be alive and will do so-and-so.” As it is, you get a certain pride in yourself in planning your future with such confidence. That sort of pride is all wrong. No doubt you agree with the above in theory. Well, remember that if a man knows what is right and fails to do it, his failure is a real sin.
and ye do not know what shall be tomorrow. For what is your life? Certainly it is a vapour that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

How do you know what is going to happen tomorrow? For the length of your lives is as uncertain as the morning fog—now you see it; soon it is gone.
And now I have a word for you who brashly announce, “Today—at the latest, tomorrow—we’re off to such and such a city for the year. We’re going to start a business and make a lot of money.” You don’t know the first thing about tomorrow. You’re nothing but a wisp of fog, catching a brief bit of sun before disappearing. Instead, make it a habit to say, “If the Master wills it and we’re still alive, we’ll do this or that.”
whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? It is just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
You have no idea · what your life will be like · tomorrow. · For you are but a mist that appears for a brief moment and then disappears.
You don’t know what will happen tomorrow. What is life? You are a mist that is seen for a moment and then disappears.

Yet you do not even have da’as of what tomorrow’s "yom" may bring. Look at your life! Are you not an ed (mist), appearing a short time, then indeed disappearing? [IYOV 7:7; TEHILLIM 39:5; 102:3; 144:4; YESHAYAH 2:22]

who do not know the thing of the morrow; for what is your life? for it is a vapour that is appearing for a little, and then is vanishing;
