He has made everything beautiful in its time.1 He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom2 what God has done from beginning to end.312
I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.
That everyone may eat and drink,4 and find satisfaction5 in all his toil--this is the gift of God.614
I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.715
Whatever is has already been,8 and what will be has been before;9 and God will call the past to account.a
