Ecclesiastes 1 


Everything Is Meaningless


1]. The words of the Teacher,[a] son of David, king in Jerusalem:


2]. “Meaningless! Meaningless!”  says the Teacher.

     “Utterly meaningless!

      Everything is meaningless.”


3]. What do people gain from all their labors  at which they toil under the sun?


4]. Generations come and generations go,  but the earth remains forever.


5]. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises.


6]. The wind blows to the south and turns to the north;round and round it goes,

     ever returning on its course.


7]. All streams flow into the sea,

    yet the sea is never full.


To the place the streams come from, there they return again.


8] All things are wearisome, more than one can say.The eye never has enough of seeing,

    nor the ear its fill of hearing.


9]. What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again;

     there is nothing new under the sun.


10]. Is there anything of which one can say,  “Look! This is something new”?

      It was here already, long ago;  it was here before our time.


11]. No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come 

       will not be remembered  by those who follow them.

      Wisdom Is Meaningless


12]. I, the Teacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem. 


13]. I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens.

       What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind! 


14]. I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless,

      a chasing after the wind.


15]. What is crooked cannot be straightened;  what is lacking cannot be counted.


16]. I said to myself, “Look, I have increased in wisdom more than anyone who has ruled over       Jerusalem before me; 

      I have experienced much of wisdom and knowledge.” 


17]. Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, 

       but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind.


18]. For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.
