Ecclesiastes Chapter 1

-, . 1 The words of Koheleth, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
, . 2 Vanity of vanities, saith Koheleth; vanity of vanities, all is vanity.
-, : ---, . 3 What profit hath man of all his labour wherein he laboureth under the sun?
, . 4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh; and the earth abideth for ever.
, ; --- , . 5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he ariseth.
, -, , -; , - . 6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it turneth about continually in its circuit, and the wind returneth again to its circuits.
- -, ; -, -- , . 7 All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; unto the place whither the rivers go, thither they go again.
- , - ; - , - . 8 All things toil to weariness; man cannot utter it, the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
-, , -, ; -, . 9 That which hath been is that which shall be, and that which hath been done is that which shall be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.
-, : , . 10 Is there a thing whereof it is said: 'See, this is new'?--it hath been already, in the ages which were before us.
, ; , - -- , . {} 11 There is no remembrance of them of former times; neither shall there be any remembrance of them of latter times that are to come, among those that shall come after. {P}
, ---. 12 I Koheleth have been king over Israel in Jerusalem.
-, , - , ; , -- . 13 And I applied my heart to seek and to search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven; it is a sore task that God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised therewith.
, --, , ; , . 14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.
, - ; , - . 15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight; and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
-, -- , -- -; , . 16 I spoke with my own heart, saying: 'Lo, I have gotten great wisdom, more also than all that were before me over Jerusalem'; yea, my heart hath had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
, : , - . 17 And I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly--I perceived that this also was a striving after wind.
, -; , . 18 For in much wisdom is much vexation; and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
