Ecclesiastes 6

Ecclesiastes Chapter 6 KJV

1The vanity and misery of riches to one that wanteth an heart to use them; 3to whom, although he hath many children and long life, an untimely birth is preferable. 7The vanity of insatiable desires. 10From the past, which is known, the vanity of man is seen; the future is unknown.
1 There is 1an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men:
2 A 1man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: 2this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
3 1If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that 2the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and 3also that he have no burial; I say, that 4an untimely birth is better than he.
4 For he 1cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.
5 Moreover 1he hath not seen the sun, nor known any thing: this hath more rest than the other.
6 ¶ Yea, 1though he live a thousand years twice told, yet 2hath he seen no good: 3do not all go to one place?
7 1All the labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the aappetite is not filled.
8 1For what hath the wise more than the fool? what hath the poor, that 2knoweth to walk before the living?
9 1Better is the sight of the eyes athan the wandering of the desire: 2this is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
10 1That which hath been is named already, and it is known 2that it is man: 3neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he.
11 ¶ Seeing there 1be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?
12 For 1who knoweth what is good for man in this life, aall the days of his vain life which he spendeth as 2a shadow? 3for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
