7 “[a]Is not man (A)forced to labor on earth,And are not his days like the days of (B)a hired man?2 “As a slave who pants for the shade,And as a hired man who eagerly waits for 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)
