New International Version
But a man dies and is laid low; he breathes his last and is no more.
King James Bible
But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?
Darby Bible Translation
But a man dieth, and is prostrate; yea, man expireth, and where is he?
World English Bible
But man dies, and is laid low. Yes, man gives up the spirit, and where is he?
Young's Literal Translation
And a man dieth, and becometh weak, And man expireth, and where is he?
Job 14:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But man dieth - No human being ever can spring from the dead body of man; that wasteth away, corrupts, and is dissolved; for the man dies; and when he breathes out his last breath, and his body is reduced to dust, then, where is he? There is a beautiful verse in the Persian poet Khosroo, that is not unlike this saying of Job: -
"I went towards the burying ground, and wept
To think of the departure of friends which were captives to death;

I wept, and thought of friends there laid,
Whose hearts with warmest love had blazed.
Where are those friends my heart doth lack,
Whose words, in grief, gave peace? Ah, where?
And Fate, by Echo, gave me back

That which I do I allow not; for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing. By one man sin entered into the world, . . . by one man's …

Whether There is to be a Resurrection of the Body?
Whether the Time of Our Resurrection Should be Delayed Till the End of the World?
1 Chronicles 29:15
We are foreigners and strangers in your sight, as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope.
For now I would be lying down in peace; I would be asleep and at rest
Would it turn out well if he examined you? Could you deceive him as you might deceive a mortal?
yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.
