Eccleasiates 1

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]

ECCLES 1:1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

ECCLES 1:2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher; vanity of vanities, all is vanity.

ECCLES 1:3 What profit hath man of all his labor wherein he laboreth under the sun?

ECCLES 1:4 One generation goeth, and another generation cometh; but the earth abideth for ever.

ECCLES 1:5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to its place where it ariseth.

ECCLES 1:6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it turneth about continually in its course, and the wind returneth again to its circuits.

ECCLES 1:7 All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; unto the place whither the rivers go, thither they go again.

ECCLES 1:8 All things are full of weariness; man cannot utter `it': the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

ECCLES 1:9 That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

ECCLES 1:10 Is there a thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been long ago, in the ages which were before us.

ECCLES 1:11 There is no remembrance of the former `generations'; neither shall there be any remembrance of the latter `generations' that are to come, among those that shall come after.

ECCLES 1:12 I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.

ECCLES 1:13 And I applied my heart to seek and to search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven: it is a sore travail that God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised therewith.

ECCLES 1:14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.

ECCLES 1:15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight; and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.

ECCLES 1:16 I communed with mine own hear, saying, Lo, I have gotten me great wisdom above all that were before me in Jerusalem; yea, my heart hath had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.

ECCLES 1:17 And I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also was a striving after wind.

ECCLES 1:18 For in much wisdom is much grief; and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
