Psalms 103:16

For the wind passes over it, and it is gone; and the place there shall know it no more.
Read Chapter 103

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
20. "The wind shall go over on it, it shall not be; and the place thereof shall know it no more" (ver. 16). For he is not speaking of grass, but of that for whose sake even the Word became grass. For thou art man, and on thy account the Word became man. "All flesh is grass:" "and the Word was made flesh." How great then is the hope of the grass, since the Word hath been made flesh? That which abideth for evermore, hath not disdained to assume grass, that the grass might not despair of itself.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
In him. Or "over it "the flower. Or the spirit of God's indignation will overwhelm him. The soul of man departs, and cannot naturally be reunited with the body, though it greatly desire that union. (Calmet) The longest life is but like the duration of a flower, (Isaias xl. 6.; Haydock) and the splendour of the noblest families is no better in the sight of God. (St. Augustine)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
