Ecclesiastes 2:16; Ecclesiastes 8:10; Ecclesiastes 9:5
For there is no lasting remembrance of the wise man as with the fool, inasmuch as in the coming days all will be forgotten. And how the wise man and the fool alike die!
So then, I have seen the wicked buried, those who used to go in and out from the holy place, and they are soon forgotten in the city where they did thus. This too is futility.
For the living know they will die; but the dead do not know anything, nor have they any longer a reward, for their memory is forgotten.
