Go, 1eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do.
2Let your garments be always white. Let not 3oil be lacking on your head.
Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your 4vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your 5portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun.
Whatever your hand finds to do, 6do it with your might,7for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.
