There is a vanity that takes place on earth, that there are righteous people 11to whom it happens according to the deeds of the wicked, and there are wicked people 12to whom it happens according to the deeds of the righteous. I said that this also is vanity.
And I commend joy, for man 13has no good thing under the sun but to 14eat and drink and be joyful, for this will go with him in his toil through the days of his life that God has given him under the sun.
then I saw all the work of God, that 17man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun. However much man may toil in seeking, he will not find it out. Even though a wise man claims to know, 18he cannot find it out.
