Man that is born of a woman

Language: English after the Latin

Man that is born of a woman hath but
A short time to live, and is full of misery.
He cometh up, and is cut down like a flow'r;
He flee'th as it were a shadow, and ne'er
Continueth in one stay.

L'homme qui est né d'une femme n'a

Language: French (Français) after the English

L'homme qui est né d'une femme n'a
Qu'un court instant à vivre, et est plein de misère.
Il s'élève et il est cueilli comme une fleur ;
Il fuit comme s'il était une ombre, et jamais
Ne s'arrête pour un séjour.
