which are little upon the earth,

one event happeneth to them all.

As it happeneth to the fool,
so it happeneth even to me;
and why was I then more wise?
Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.

more than of the fool for ever;
seeing that which now is
in the days to come shall all be forgotten.

whether he shall be a wise man or a fool?

shall feel no evil thing:
and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time

that is done under the sun:
because though a man labour to seek it out,
yet he shall not find it;
yea further; though a wise man think to know it,
yet shall he not be able to find it.

Ecc 9:1 For all this I considered in my heart
even to declare all this, that the righteous,
and the wise,
and their works,
are in the hand of God:
no man knoweth either love
or hatred by all that is before them.

and saw under the sun,
that the race is not to the swift,

and chance happeneth to them all.

but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.

because the preacher was wise,
he still taught the people knowledge;
yea, he gave good heed,
and sought out,
and set in order many proverbs.

and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies,
which are given from one shepherd.
