Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
9 Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth; walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment. 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 vexation from your mind, and put away pain from your body; for youth and the dawn of life are vanity. 10 So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless.
