Wisdom 2:5
Our time here is like a shadow passing by. There’s no turning back from death. It has been sealed, and no one will alter it.
For our time is as the passing of a shadow, and there is no going back of our end: for it is fast sealed, and no man returneth.
Our time on earth is like a passing shadow. There is no escape from the day of our death; it is fixed, and no one can postpone it.
For our lifetime is the passing of a shadow; and our dying cannot be deferred because it is fixed with a seal; and no one returns.
For our allotted time is the passing of a shadow, and there is no return from our death, because it is sealed up and no one turns back.
For our allotted time is the passing of a shadow, and there is no return from our death, because it is sealed up and no one turns back.
For our allotted time is the passing of a shadow, and there is no return from our death, because it is sealed up and no one turns back.
For our allotted time is the passing of a shadow, and there is no return from our death, because it is sealed up and no one turns back.
For our allotted time is the passing of a shadow, and there is no return from our death, because it is sealed up and no one turns back.
For our allotted time is the passing of a shadow, and there is no return from our death, because it is sealed up and no one turns back.
For why our time is the passing of a shadow, and no (re)turning again of (or after) our end there is; for it is asealed, and no man (re)turneth again. [Forsooth the passing of the shadow is our time, and there is not turning again of our end; for it is all closed, and no man turneth again.]
