1 H7451 There is an evil H834 which H7200 I have seen H8478 under H8121 the sun, H7227 and it is common H5921 among H120 men:
2 H376 A man H834 to whom H430 God H5414 has given H6239 riches, H5233 wealth, H3519 and honor, H2638 so that he wants H369 nothing H5315 for his soul H3605 of all H183 that he desires, H430 yet God H7980 gives him not power H398 to eat H376 thereof, but a stranger H5237 H398 eats H2088 it: this H1892 is vanity, H7451 and it is an evil H2483 disease.
3 H518 If H376 a man H3205 beget H3967 an hundred H2421 children, and live H7227 many H8141 years, H3117 so that the days H8141 of his years H7227 be many, H5315 and his soul H7646 be not filled H2896 with good, H1571 and also H1961 that he have H3808 no H6900 burial; H559 I say, H5309 that an untimely H5309 birth H2896 is better than he.
4 H935 For he comes H1892 in with vanity, H3212 and departs H2822 in darkness, H8034 and his name H3680 shall be covered H2822 with darkness.
5 H1571 Moreover H7200 he has not seen H8121 the sun, H3808 nor H3045 known H2088 any thing: this H5183 has more rest H2088 than the other.
6 H432 Yes, H2421 though he live H505 a thousand H8141 years H6471 twice H7200 told, yet has he seen H3808 no H2896 good: H3605 do not all H1980 go H259 to one H4725 place?
7 H3605 All H5999 the labor H120 of man H6310 is for his mouth, H1571 and yet H5315 the appetite H4390 is not filled.
8 H4100 For what H2450 has the wise H3148 more H4480 than H3684 the fool? H4100 what H6041 has the poor, H3045 that knows H1980 to walk H5048 before H2416 the living?
9 H2896 Better H4758 is the sight H5869 of the eyes H1981 than the wandering H5315 of the desire: H2088 this H1571 is also H1892 vanity H7469 and vexation H7307 of spirit.
10 H1961 That which has been H8034 is named H7121 H3528 already, H3045 and it is known H120 that it is man: H3808 neither H3201 may H1777 he contend H8623 with him that is mightier than he.
11 H3588 Seeing H7235 there be many H1697 things H7235 that increase H1892 vanity, H4100 what H120 is man H3148 the better?
