11Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, for you 2will find it aafter manydays.
23Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not knowwhat4misfortune may occur on the earth.
3If the clouds are full, they pour out rain upon the earth; and whether a treefalls toward the south or toward the north, wherever the treefalls, there it blies.
He who watches the wind will not sow and he who looks at the clouds will not reap.
5Just as you do not 5knowcthe path of the wind and 6how bones are formed in the womb of the dpregnantwoman, so you do not 7know the activity of Godwhomakesallthings.
6Sow your seed8in the morning and do not ebe idle in the evening, for you do not knowwhetherfmorningor evening sowing will succeed, or whetherboth of them alike will be good.
The light is pleasant, and it is good for the eyes to 9see the sun.
8Indeed, if a man should livemanyyears, let him 10rejoice in them all, and let him remember the 11days of darkness, for they will be many. Everything that is to come will be futility.
9Rejoice, youngman, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of youngmanhood. And follow the gimpulses of your heart and the h12desires of your eyes. Yet know that 13God will bring you to judgment for allthesethings.
So, removegrief and anger from your heart and putawayi14pain from your body, becausechildhood and the prime of life are fleeting.
