Psalms 103:15-16

Context

103:15 A person’s life is like grass. 1 

Like a flower in the field it flourishes,

103:16 but when the hot wind 2  blows by, it disappears,

and one can no longer even spot the place where it once grew.

1 tn Heb “[as for] mankind, like grass [are] his days.” The Hebrew noun אֱנוֹשׁ (’enosh) is used here generically of human beings. What is said is true of all mankind.

2 tn Heb “[the] wind.” The word “hot” is supplied in the translation for clarification.
