New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Again I saw all the oppressions that are practiced under the sun. Look, the tears of the oppressed—with no one to comfort them! On the side of their oppressors there was power—with 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 And I thought the dead, who have already died, more fortunate 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.
