Bible: Psalm 39:4-6; 90:9-12
and the brevity of life! 1
Let me realize how quickly my life will pass! 2
39:5 Look, you make my days short-lived, 3
and my life span is nothing from your perspective. 4
Surely all people, even those who seem secure, are nothing but vapor. 5
39:6 Surely people go through life as mere ghosts. 6
Surely they accumulate worthless wealth
without knowing who will eventually haul it away.” 7
1:9 God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place 1 and let dry ground appear.” 2 It was so. 1:10 God called the dry ground “land” 3 and the gathered waters he called “seas.” God saw that it was good.
1:11 God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: 4 plants yielding seeds according to their kinds, 5 and 6 trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.” It was so. 1:12 The land produced vegetation – plants yielding seeds according to their kinds, and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. God saw that it was good.
