Ecclesiastes 1:2-3; Ecclesiastes 1:14; Ecclesiastes 1:17
Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?
I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.
And I applied my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is but a striving after wind.
