Ecclesiastes 1:12-15 NLT

12 I, the Teacher, was king of Israel, and I lived in Jerusalem.
13 I devoted myself to search for understanding and to explore by wisdom everything being done in the world. I soon discovered that God has dealt a tragic existence to the human race.
14 Everything under the sun is meaningless, like chasing the wind.
15 What is wrong cannot be righted. What is missing cannot be recovered.
