but he does not recognize it!
His head is filled with gray hair,
but he does not realize it!
8:7 They sow the wind,
and so they will reap the whirlwind!
The stalk does not have any standing grain;
it will not produce any flour.
Even if it were to yield grain,
foreigners would swallow it all up.
1 tn Heb “foreigners consume his strength”; NRSV “devour (sap NIV) his strength.”
