1The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises.
2The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north; around and around goes the wind, and on its circuits the wind returns.
All 3streams run to the sea, but the sea is not full; to the place where the streams flow, there they flow again.
All things are full of weariness; a man cannot utter it; 4the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
5What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there a thing of which it is said, "See, this is new"? It has been 6already in the ages before us.
There is no 7remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after.
