Psalm 39, 4-5

Show me, O LORD, my life's end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting is my life. 5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Each man's life is but a breath.

God's breath is the life of the Universe.

Dear swahilya, the breath of god .. a marvellous comment.

A.V.C. said...

"Each man's life is but a breath".

And that is not a little thing. Of all breaths that one takes during a life time, none could be spared.

To me, that is a beautiful verse.

Dear a.v.c. I thought so, that you would be one who would like that psalm. Thank you.
