Psalm 82:7

James 1:10
but the one who is rich [should boast] in his humiliation, because he will pass away like a flower of the field.
James 1:11

Ecclesiastes 3:18-21
I said to myself, "This happens concerning people, so that God may test them and they may see for themselves that they are like animals."
For the fate of people and the fate of animals is the same. As one dies, so dies the other; they all have the same breath. People have no advantage over animals, for everything is futile.
All are going to the same place; all come from dust, and all return to dust.
Who knows if the spirit of people rises upward and the spirit of animals goes downward to the earth?
Ecclesiastes 9:12
For man certainly does not know his time: like fish caught in a cruel net, or like birds caught in a trap, so people are trapped in an evil time, as it suddenly falls on them.
