Ecclesiastes 6

JUB 1 There is <em>another</em> evil which I have seen under the sun, and it <em>is</em> very common among men: NIV 1 I have seen another evil under the sun, and it weighs heavily on mankind: JUB 2 A man to whom God has given riches, wealth, and honour so that he lacks nothing for his soul of all that he desires, yet God does not give him power to eat of it, but the strangers eat it; this <em>is</em> vanity, and it <em>is</em> an evil disease. NIV 2 God gives some people wealth, possessions and honor, so that they lack nothing their hearts desire, but God does not grant them the ability to enjoy them, and strangers enjoy them instead. This is meaningless, a grievous evil. JUB 3 If a man begets a hundred <em>sons</em> and lives many years so that the days of his years are many, if his soul is not filled with good and also <em>that</em> he have no burial; I say <em>that</em> an aborted birth <em>is</em> better than he. NIV 3 A man may have a hundred children and live many years; yet no matter how long he lives, if he cannot enjoy his prosperity and does not receive proper burial, I say that a stillborn child is better off than he. JUB 4 For he came in vain and departs unto darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness. NIV 4 It comes without meaning, it departs in darkness, and in darkness its name is shrouded. JUB 5 Even though he has not seen the sun nor known <em>any thing</em>; this <em>one</em> has more rest than the other. NIV 5 Though it never saw the sun or knew anything, it has more rest than does that man— JUB 6 For though <em>the other should</em> live a thousand years twice and has not enjoyed good; both shall surely go to the same place. NIV 6 even if he lives a thousand years twice over but fails to enjoy his prosperity. Do not all go to the same place? JUB 7 All the labour of man <em>is</em> for his mouth, and with all this the appetite is not filled. NIV 7 Everyone’s toil is for their mouth, yet their appetite is never satisfied. JUB 8 For what has the wise more than the fool? what <em>more has</em> the poor that knows how to walk among the living? NIV 8 What advantage have the wise over fools? What do the poor gain by knowing how to conduct themselves before others? JUB 9 It is better to enjoy the good that is present than the wandering of desire; this <em>is</em> also vanity and vexation of spirit. NIV 9 Better what the eye sees than the roving of the appetite. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. JUB 10 He that is has been named already; and it is known that he <em>is</em> man and that he shall not be able to contend with him that is mightier than he. NIV 10 Whatever exists has already been named, and what humanity is has been known; no one can contend with someone who is stronger. JUB 11 Certainly the many words multiply vanity, what more does man have? NIV 11 The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone? JUB 12 For who knows what <em>is</em> good for man in <em>this</em> life, all the days of the life of his vanity which he causes <em>to be</em> as a shadow? for who shall teach the man what shall be after him under the sun? NIV 12 For who knows what is good for a person in life, during the few and meaningless days they pass through like a shadow? Who can tell them what will happen under the sun after they are gone?
