|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
18 And I hated everything I'd accomplished and accumulated on this earth. I can't take it with me - no, I have to leave it to whoever comes after me.
18 I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me.
