A/^^HAT profit hath a man of that wherein he laboureth ? I have seen the travail which God hath given to the sons of men, to be exercised in it. He hath made everything good in its time ; also He hath given the world over to their wranglings, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh, from the beginning to the end. And I know that there is nothing better than for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
