New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
7 So go ahead. Eat your food and drink your wine with a happy heart, for God approves of this! 7 Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do.
8 Wear fine clothes, with a dash of cologne! 8 Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil.
9 Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you in this world. The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil. 9 Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun--all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.
