The words of 1the Preacher,a the son of David, 2king in Jerusalem.
23Vanityb of vanities, says 4the Preacher, 5vanity of vanities! 6All is vanity.
37What 8does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?
A generation goes, and a generation comes, but 9the earth remains forever.
510The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastensc to the place where it rises.
611The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north; around and around goes the wind, and on its circuits the wind returns.
