Chapter Summary
1 :1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2 : .2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
3 3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
4 .4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
5 .5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
6 . ǡ .6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7 . .7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
8 . . .8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9 .9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 : . ! .10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
11 . .11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
12 .12 I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.
13 . .13 And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.
14 .14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
15 .15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
16 : .16 I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
17 .17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
18 .18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
