New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
9 History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. 9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
10 What can you point to that is new? How do you know it didn't already exist long ago? 10 Is there anything of which one can say, "Look! This is something new"? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.
11 We don't remember what happened in those former times. And in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now. 11 There is no remembrance of men of old, and even those who are yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow.
