Ecclesiastes 5:10-17 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
10 (5-9) A covetous man shall not be satisfied with money: and he that loveth riches shall reap no fruit from them: so this also is vanity. 11 (5-10) Where there are great riches, there are also many to eat them. And what doth it profit the owner, but that he seeth the riches with his eyes? 12 (5-11) Sleep is sweet to a labouring man, whether he eat little or much: but the fulness of the rich will not suffer him to sleep. 13 (5-12) There is also another grievous evil, which I have seen under the sun: riches kept to the hurt of the owner. 14 (5-13) For they are lost with very great affliction: he hath begotten a son, who shall be in extremity of want. 15 (5-14) As he came forth naked from his mother’s womb, so shall he return, and shall take nothing away with him of his labour. 16 (5-15) A most deplorable evil: as he came, so shall he return. What then doth it profit him that he hath laboured for the wind? 17 (5-16) All the days of his life he eateth in darkness, and in many cares, and in misery, and sorrow.
