I am forgotten by them as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery.
I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.
I have been ignored as if I were dead, as if I were a broken pot.
They want to blot me from memory, forget me like a corpse in a grave, discard me like a broken dish in the trash.
I have gone from men’s minds and memory like a dead man; I am like a broken vessel.
I have passed out of mind like one who is dead; I have become like a broken vessel.
I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.

1 tn Heb “I am forgotten, like a dead man, from [the] heart.” The “heart” is here viewed as the center of one’s thoughts.
2 tn Heb “I am like a broken jar.” One throws away a broken jar without a second thought because it is considered worthless and useless.
