Ecclesiastes 1

  1 H1697 The words H6953 of the Preacher, H1121 the son H1732 of David, H4428 king H3389 of Jerusalem.
  2 H1892 Vanity H1892 of vanities, H559 [H8804] saith H6953 the Preacher, H1892 vanity H1892 of vanities; H1892 all is vanity.
  3 H3504 What profit H120 hath a man H5999 of all his labour H5998 [H8799] which he taketh H8121 under the sun?
  4 H1755 One generation H1980 [H8802] passeth away, H1755 and another generation H935 H935 [H8802] cometh: H776 but the earth H5975 [H8802] abideth H5769 to the age.
  5 H8121 The sun H2224 [H8804] also riseth, H8121 and the sun H935 [H8804] goeth down, H7602 [H8802] and hasteth H4725 to his place H2224 [H8802] where he arose.
  6 H7307 The wind H1980 [H8802] goeth H1864 toward the south, H5437 [H8802] and turneth about H6828 to the north; H1980 [H8802] it whirleth about continually, H7307 and the wind H7725 [H8804] returneth again H5439 according to its circuits.
  7 H5158 All the rivers H1980 [H8802] run H3220 into the sea; H3220 yet the sea H4392 is not full; H4725 to the place H5158 from which the rivers H1980 [H8802] come, H7725 [H8802] there they return H3212 [H8800] again.
  8 H1697 All things H3023 are full of labour; H376 man H3201 [H8799] cannot H1696 [H8763] utter H5869 it: the eye H7646 [H8799] is not satisfied H7200 [H8800] with seeing, H241 nor the ear H4390 [H8735] filled H8085 [H8800] with hearing.
  9 H6213 [H8738] The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done H6213 [H8735] is that which shall be done: H2319 and there is no new H8121 thing under the sun.
  10 H3426 Is there H1697 any thing H559 [H8799] of which it may be said, H7200 [H8798] See, H2319 this is new? H3528 it hath been already H5769 of old time, H6440 which was at the face of us.
  11 H2146 There is no remembrance H7223 of former H2146 things; neither shall there be any remembrance H314 of things that are to come H314 with those that shall come after.
  12 H6953 I the Preacher H4428 was king H3478 over Israel H3389 in Jerusalem.
  13 H5414 [H8804] And I gave H3820 my heart H1875 [H8800] to seek H8446 [H8800] and search out H2451 by wisdom H6213 [H8738] concerning all things that are done H8064 under heaven: H7451 this grievous H6045 labour H430 hath God H5414 [H8804] given H1121 to the sons H120 of man H6031 [H8800] to be exercised with it.
  14 H7200 [H8804] I have seen H4639 all the works H6213 [H8738] that are done H8121 under the sun; H1892 and, behold, all is vanity H7469 and vexation H7307 of spirit.
  15 H5791 [H8794] That which is crooked H3201 [H8799] cannot H8626 [H8800] be made straight: H2642 and that which is lacking H3201 [H8799] cannot H4487 [H8736] be numbered.
  16 H1696 [H8765] I spoke H3820 to my own heart, H559 [H8800] saying, H1431 [H8689] Lo, I have come to great estate, H3254 [H8689] and have gained H2451 more wisdom H6440 than all they that have been at the face of H3389 me in Jerusalem: H3820 and my heart H7235 [H8687] had great H7200 [H8804] experience H2451 of wisdom H1847 and knowledge.
  17 H5414 [H8799] And I gave H3820 my heart H3045 [H8800] to know H2451 wisdom, H3045 [H8800] and to know H1947 madness H5531 and folly: H3045 [H8804] I perceived H1571 that this H7475 also is vexation H7307 of spirit.
  18 H7230 For in much H2451 wisdom H7230 is much H3708 vexation: H3254 [H8686] and he that increaseth H1847 knowledge H3254 [H8686] increaseth H4341 sorrow.
