11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also given men a sense of what he's been doing down through the ages. But they can't completely figure out what he's done from the beginning to the end.
12 They should be happy and do good while they live. I know there's nothing better for them to do than that.
13 Everyone should eat and drink. People should be satisfied with all of their hard work. That is God's gift to them.
14 I know that everything God does will last forever. Nothing can be added to it. And nothing can be taken from it. God does that so men will have respect for him.
