VIN(i) 1 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is heavy on men: 2 God gives a man wealth, possessions, and honor, so that he lacks nothing his heart desires; yet God does not enable him to enjoy it—instead someone else ends up enjoying it. This is vanity—indeed, it is a grievous ill! 3 A man can have a hundred children and live many years. If he does not enjoy prosperity and have a decent burial, a stillborn child is better off then he. 4 for it comes in vanity, and departs in darkness, and its name is covered with darkness. 5 Moreover, it neither saw the sun nor knew anything; Thus this had more rest than that man, 6 "Even though he lives a thousand years twice over, yet he has seen no good. Do not all go to one place?" 7 All of a man's toil is for his mouth— yet his appetite is never satisfied. 8 For what advantage has the wise more than the fool? What has the poor man, that knows how to walk before the living? 9 Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind. 10 That which is hath already been named; and what man is, is known, and that he cannot contend with him that is mightier than he. 11 ⌊Increasing words only multiplies futility⌋, how does that profit anyone? 12 For who knows what is good for a man in his life during the few days of his fleeting life, which are fleeting as a shadow? For who can tell anyone what will happen in the future under the sun?
