Wisdom of Solomon 5:12

“Or like as when an arrow is shot at a marke, it parteth the aire, which immediatly commeth together againe: so that a man cannot know where it went thorow:”

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 5:12

9. All those things are passed away like a shadow, and as a Poste that hasted by. 10. And as a ship that passeth ouer the waues of the water, which when it is gone by, the trace thereof cannot bee found: neither the path way of the keele in the waues. 11. Or as when a bird hath flowen thorow the aire, there is no token of her way to be found, but the light aire being beaten with the stroke of her wings, and parted with the violent noise and motion of them, is passed thorow, and therin afterwards no signe where she went, is to be found. 12. Or like as when an arrow is shot at a marke, it parteth the aire, which immediatly commeth together againe: so that a man cannot know where it went thorow: 13. Euen so we in like maner, assoone as we were borne, began to draw to our end, and had no signe of vertue to shew: but were consumed in our owne wickednesse. 14. For the hope of the vngodly is like dust that is blowen away with the wind, like a thinne froth that is driuen away with the storme: like as the smoke which is dispersed here and there with a tempest, and passeth away as the remembrance of a guest that tarieth but a day. 15. But the righteous liue for euermore, their reward also is with the Lord, and the care of them is with the most High.
