For we are strangers - We have here neither right nor property.
And sojourners - Lodging as it were for a night, in the mansion of another.

"As the shadow of a bird flying in the air [אויר avir] of heaven, such are our days upon the earth; nor is there any hope to any son of man that he shall live for ever." - Targum.
