|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
12 In the few days of our empty lives, who knows how our days can best be spent? And who can tell what will happen in the future after we are gone?
12 For who knows what is good for a man in life, during the few and meaningless days he passes through like a shadow? Who can tell him what will happen under the sun after he is gone?
