Ecclesiastes 2:24-26 MSG

24 The best you can do with your life is have a good time and get by the best you can. The way I see it, that's it - divine fate.
25 Whether we feast or fast, it's up to God.
26 God may give wisdom and knowledge and joy to his favorites, but sinners are assigned a life of hard labor, and end up turning their wages over to God's favorites. Nothing but smoke - and spitting into the wind.
