Ecclesiastes 4:4; Ecclesiastes 4:6; Ecclesiastes 4:16 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)
I also observed that people work hard and become good at what they do only out of mutual envy. This too is pointless, just wind chasing.
But better is resting with one handful than working hard for two fistfuls and chasing after wind.
There was no counting the number of people he ruled, but those who came later aren't happy with him. This too is pointless and a chasing after wind.
