Ecclesiastes 6:10-12

KJV 10 That which hath been is named already, and it is known that it is man: neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he. NIV 10 Whatever exists has already been named, and what man is has been known; no man can contend with one who is stronger than he. KJV 11 Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better? NIV 11 The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone? KJV 12 For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun? NIV 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?
