threescore and ten

threescore years and ten the age of seventy as one's allotted span, with biblical allusion to Psalm 90:

You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.

All our days pass away under your wrath;
    we finish our years with a moan.

Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures; 

yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
