And all the glory of man as the flower of grass.

And the flower thereof falleth away;

matter in his More Nevoch., par. iii., cap. 41, where, expounding these words, which he took violently, of an open robber, he gives these reasons why he was not punished so much as a thief, but restored only the principal, with a fifth part; because rapine happens seldom, but theft often; for it cannot be committed so easily as theft; and is done openly and manifestly, whereas theft is committed more secretly: so that a man may be aware (he imagines) of a robber, and defend his goods against him, better than a secret thief. Au. Wer.—The thing which he has deceit– fully gotten. Others.-Which he has gotten by oppression. See notes on verse 3.

Patrick.-It is the burnt offering.] He explains what burnt offering he chiefly means, viz., the daily sacrifice; which was the principal burnt offering, according to which all other offerings of that kind were to be regulated. Because of the burning upon the altar all night unto the morning.] Or, for the burning upon the altar, &c. This was the reason of its name, because it was burning on the altar from the evening (at which the Jews began their day) till the morning. For which purpose the priests watched all night, and put the sacrifice upon the altar piece by piece, that it might be consumed by a slow and gentle fire. As for the morning sacrifice, it is not here mentioned, because it was consumed by a quicker fire; that there might be room for other sacrifices that were commonly offered after it (as appears from ver. 12), and were only offered in the morning, not at night.
