Ecclesiastes 1:2-3; Ecclesiastes 1:14; Ecclesiastes 1:17
Vanity of vanities, says the Teacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
What do people gain from all the toil at which they toil under the sun?
I saw all the deeds that are done under the sun; and see, all is vanity and a chasing after wind.
And I applied my mind to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is but a chasing after wind.
