The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
13 But I did see that it's better to be smart than stupid, just as light is better than darkness. 13 I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as light is better than darkness.
14 Even so, though the smart ones see where they're going and the stupid ones grope in the dark, they're all the same in the end. One fate for all - and that's it. 14 The wise man has eyes in his head, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realize that the same fate overtakes them both.
