7 “Human life on earth is like serving in the army;yes, we drudge through our days like a hired worker,2 like a slave longing for shade,like a worker thinking only of his wages.
7 “Do not mortals have hard service(A) on earth?(B) Are not their days like those of hired laborers?(C)2 Like a slave longing for the evening shadows,(D) or a hired laborer waiting to be paid,(E)
