Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
9 Rejoice, young person, while you are young! Your heart should make you happy in your prime. Follow your heart's inclinations and whatever your eyes see, but know this: God will call you to account for all of these things. 9 Be happy, young man, while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you to judgment.
10 Remove anxiety from your heart, banish pain from your body, because youth and the dawn of life are pointless too. 10 So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless.
