New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
9 Young man, it's wonderful to be young! Enjoy every minute of it. Do everything you want to do; take it all in. But remember that you must give an account to God for everything you do. 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 So banish grief and pain, but remember that youth, with a whole life before it, still faces the threat of meaninglessness. 10 So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless.
