The Limitations of Wisdom

12 I, the Teacher, have beena king over Israel in Jerusalem.
13 I applied my mind to seek and explore through wisdom all that is done under heaven. God has given people this miserable task to keep them occupied.
14 I have seen all the things that are done under the sun and have found everything to be futile, a pursuit of the wind.b
15 What is crooked cannot be straightened; what is lacking cannot be counted.
