021: Ecclesiastes Book 21


021:Ecclesiastes 001:001
The words of the Preacher,
the son of David,
king in Jerusalem.


021:001:002
Vanity of vanities,
saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities;
all is vanity.


021:001:003
What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?


021:001:004
One generation passeth away,
and another generation cometh:
but the earth abideth for ever.


021:001:005
The sun also ariseth,
and the sun goeth down,
and hasteth to his place where he arose.


021:001:006
The wind goeth toward the south,
and turneth about unto the north;
it whirleth about continually,
and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.


021:001:007
All the rivers run into the sea;
yet the sea is not full;
unto the place from whence the rivers come,
thither they return again.


021:001:008
All things are full of labour;
man cannot utter it:
the eye is not satisfied with seeing,
nor the ear filled with hearing.


021:001:009
The thing that hath been,
it is that which shall be;
and that which is done is that which shall be done:
and there is no new thing under the sun.


021:001:010
Is there any thing whereof it may be said,
See,
this is new?
it hath been already of old time,
which was before us.


021:001:011
There is no remembrance of former things;
neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.


021:001:012
I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.


021:001:013
And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven:
this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.


021:001:014
I have seen all the works that are done under the sun;
and,
behold,
all is vanity and vexation of spirit.


021:001:015
That which is crooked cannot be made straight:
and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.


021:001:016
I communed with mine own heart,
saying,
Lo,
I am come to great estate,
and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem:
yea,
my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.


021:001:017
And I gave my heart to know wisdom,
and to know madness and folly:
I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.


021:001:018
For in much wisdom is much grief:
and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
