‘all is vanity’ ….. mentioned in the Holy Bible (KJV)

Again, I considered all travail,
and every right work,
that for this a man is envied of his neighbour.
This is also vanity and vexation of spirit. – Ecc 4:4

I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “all is vanity”.

Ecc 1:2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities;
all is vanity.

Ecc 1:14 I have seen all the works
that are done under the sun;
and, behold, all is vanity
and vexation of spirit.

Ecc 2:17 Therefore I hated life;
because the work that is wrought
under the sun is grievous unto me:
for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

Ecc 3:19 For that which befalleth
the sons of men befalleth beasts;
even one thing befalleth them:
as the one dieth,
so dieth the other;
yea, they have all one breath;
so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast:
for all is vanity.

Ecc 4:4 Again, I considered all travail,
and every right work,
that for this a man is envied of his neighbour.
This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

Ecc 4:8 There is one alone,
and there is not a second;
yea, he hath neither child nor brother:
yet is there no end of all his labour;
neither is his eye satisfied with riches;
neither saith he, For whom do I labour,
and bereave my soul of good?
This is also vanity,
yea, it is a sore travail.

Ecc 6:2 A man to whom God hath given riches,
wealth, and honour,
so that he wanteth nothing
for his soul of all that he desireth,
yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof,
but a stranger eateth it:
this is vanity,
and it is an evil disease.

Ecc 11:8 But if a man live many years,
and rejoice in them all;
yet let him remember the days of darkness;
for they shall be many.
All that cometh is vanity.

Ecc 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher;
all is vanity.
