7 Hath not man a life of labour upon earth? and are not his days like the days of a hireling?
2 As a bondman earnestly desireth the shadow, and a hireling expecteth 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)
