vanity of vanities ; all is vanity. What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun ? One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh ; but the earth abideth for ever. The sun also ariseth and goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose ; thence he ariseth again, and maketh his round by the South, turning again to the North, The wind whirleth about continually, and returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea ; yet the sea doth not overflow ; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return to flow again.

wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven. This sore travail hath God given to the sons of men, to be exercised therewith. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun, and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit ! It is a toil to correct the wayward, and the number of fools is uncountable. 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. And I gave my heart to know wisdom and learning, and to know madness and folly.
