"At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail.
King James Bible
For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
American Standard Version
For there is hope of a tree, If it be cut down, that it will sprout again, And that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
Young's Literal Translation
For there is of a tree hope, if it be cut down, That again it doth change, That its tender branch doth not cease.
Job 14:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For there is hope of a tree - We must not, says Calmet, understand this of an old tree, the stem and roots of which are dried up and rotted: but there are some trees which grow from cuttings, and some which, though pulled out of the earth, and having had their roots dried and withered by long exposure to the sun and wind, will, on being replanted, take root and resume their verdure. There are also certain trees, the fibres of which are so solid, that if after several years they be steeped in water, they resume their vigor, the tubes dilate, and the blossoms or flowers which were attached to them expand; as I have often witnessed in what is called the rose of Jericho. There are few trees which will not send forth new shoots, when the stock is cut down level with the earth.
