10 Whatever exists was given its name long ago,a and who man is, is known. But he is not able to contend with the One stronger than he.b
11 For when there are many words, they increase futility. What is the advantage for man?
12 For who knows what is good for man in life, in the few days of his futile life that he spends like a shadow?c Who can tell man what will happen after him under the sun?
