Ecclesiastes Chapter 1   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. [gsn] [jfb]   2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all [is] vanity. [gsn] [jfb]   3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? [gsn] [jfb]   4 [One] generation passeth away, and [another] generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. [gsn] [jfb]   5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. [jfb]   6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. [gsn] [jfb]   7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea [is] not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. [gsn] [jfb]   8 All things [are] full of labour; man cannot utter [it]: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. [jfb]   9 The thing that hath been, it [is that] which shall be; and that which is done [is] that which shall be done: and [there is] no new [thing] under the sun. [gsn] [jfb]   10 Is there [any] thing whereof it may be said, See, this [is] new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. [jfb]   11 [There is] no remembrance of former [things]; neither shall there be [any] remembrance of [things] that are to come with [those] that shall come after. [jfb]   12 I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem. [gsn] [jfb]   13 And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all [things] that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith. [gsn] [jfb]   14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all [is] vanity and vexation of spirit. [jfb]   15 [That which is] crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. [gsn] [jfb]   16 I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all [they] that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. [jfb]   17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. [gsn] [jfb]   18 For in much wisdom [is] much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. [gsn] [jfb]
