"You will come to the grave in full vigor, Like the stacking of grain in its season.

And Job died, an old man and full of days.
"No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, Or an old man who does not live out his days; For the youth will die at the age of one hundred And the one who does not reach the age of one hundred Will be thought accursed.
