-, -- . 10 I have seen the task which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised therewith.
- , ; -, -- - - - , -. 11 He hath made every thing beautiful in its time; also He hath set the world in their heart, yet so that man cannot find out the work that God hath done from the beginning even to the end.
, -- -, . 12 I know that there is nothing better for them, than to rejoice, and to get pleasure so long as they live.
- , --- , . 13 But also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy pleasure for all his labour, is the gift of God.
, - -- , ; , . 14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever; nothing can be added to it, nor any thing taken from it; and God hath so made it, that men should fear before Him.
- , ; , -. 15 That which is hath been long ago, and that which is to be hath already been; and God seeketh that which is pursued.
, : , . 16 And moreover I saw under the sun, in the place of justice, that wickedness was there; and in the place of righteousness, that wickedness was there.
, --- -, : - -, - . 17 I said in my heart: 'The righteous and the wicked God will judge; for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.'
, --- , ; , - . 18 I said in my heart: 'It is because of the sons of men, that God may sift them, and that they may see that they themselves are but as beasts.'
- , -- , ; - , . 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 man hath no pre-eminence above a beast; for all is vanity.
, - ; -, -. 20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all return to dust.
, -- , ; , -- , . 21 Who knoweth the spirit of man whether it goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast whether it goeth downward to the earth?
, ---, : , . 22 Wherefore I perceived that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his works; for that is his portion; for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
