New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
7 Go, eat your bread with enjoyment, and drink your wine with a merry heart; for God has long ago approved what you do. 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 Let your garments always be white; do not let oil be lacking on your head. 8 Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil.
9 Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that are given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun. 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.
