New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
11 He has made everything suitable for its time; moreover he has put a sense of past and future into their minds, yet they cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live; 12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.
13 moreover, it is God's gift that all should eat and drink and take pleasure in all their toil. 13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil--this is the gift of God.
14 I know that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; God has done this, so that all should stand in awe before him. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.
