Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible

Take risks; life is short

1 Send your bread out on the water because, in the course of time, you may find it again. 2 Give a portion to seven people, even to eight: you don't know what disaster may come upon the land. 3 If clouds fill up, they will empty out rain on the earth. If a tree falls, whether to the south or to the north, wherever it falls, there it will lie. 4 Those who watch the wind blow will never sow, and those who observe the clouds will never reap. 5 Just as you don't understand what the life-breath does in the fetusa inside a pregnant woman's womb, so you can't understand the work of God, who makes everything happen. 6 Scatter your seed in the morning, and in the evening don't be idle because you don't know which will succeed, this one or that, or whether both will be equally good.
