King James Bible

Young's Literal Translation
If He doth set on him His heart, His spirit and his breath unto Him He gathereth.
Job 34:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If he set his heart upon man - I think this and the following verse should be read thus: - "If he set his heart upon man, he will gather his soul and breath to himself; for all flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust." On whomsoever God sets his heart, that is, his love, though his body shall perish and turn to dust, like the rest of men, yet his soul will God gather to himself.
