I have seen real misery here on earth: Money saved is a curse to its owners.
They lose it all in a bad deal and have nothing to give to their children.
People come into this world with nothing, and when they die they leave with nothing. In spite of all their hard work, they leave just as they came.
This, too, is real misery: They leave just as they came. So what do they gain from chasing the wind?
All they get are days full of sadness and sorrow, and they end up sick, defeated, and angry.
I have seen what is best for people here on earth. They should eat and drink and enjoy their work, because the life God has given them on earth is short.
God gives some people the ability to enjoy the wealth and property he gives them, as well as the ability to accept their state in life and enjoy their work.
They do not worry about how short life is, because God keeps them busy with what they love to do.
