Sirach 17:30
Human beings can’t do all things, because no person is immortal.
What is brighter than the sun; yet it shall be eclipsed. Or what is more wicked than that which flesh and blood hath invented? and this shall be reproved.
But this is not the nature of human beings; not one of us is immortal.
For not everything is within human reach, since human beings are not immortal.
For not everything is within human capability, since human beings are not immortal.
For not everything is within human capability, since human beings are not immortal.
For not everything is within human capability, since human beings are not immortal.
For not everything is within human capability, since human beings are not immortal.
For all things cannot be in men, since a son of man is not immortal.
For all things cannot be in men, since a son of man is not immortal.
For why not all things may be (or be able to be) in men; for why the son of man is not undeadly (or immortal), and malices pleased into vanity [or and into vanity of malice they pleased].
