For he does not brood much over the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with the joy of his heart. Bible other translations

“brood much over.” The literal Hebrew is “remember,” but this is the “pregnant sense” of remember, which includes not only memory, but spending mental time thinking, fretting, considering, etc. In that context, “remember” gives somewhat the wrong impression in English.
