Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Again, I observed all the acts of oppression being done under the sun. Look at the tears of those who are oppressed; they have no one to comfort them. Power is with those who oppress them; they have no one to comfort them. 1 Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed-- and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their oppressors-- and they have no comforter.
2 So I admired the dead, who have already died, more than the living, who are still alive. 2 And I declared that the dead, who had already died, are happier than the living, who are still alive.
