1 Peter 1:24
For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Whereas ye know not what [shall be] on the morrow. For what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people [is] grass.
The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh [is] grass, and all the goodliness thereof [is] as the flower of the field:
Mine age is departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd's tent: I have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day [even] to night wilt thou make an end of me.
Cease ye from man, whose breath [is] in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?
For who knoweth what [is] good for man in [this] life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man [is] vanity. Selah.
What [is] man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?
He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.
[As] the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no [more].
The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no [more]: thine eyes [are] upon me, and I [am] not.
O remember that my life [is] wind: mine eye shall no more see good.
