4 G1074 A generation G4198 goes, G2532 and G1074 a generation G2064 comes, G2532 and G3588 the G1093 earth G1519 [2into G3588 3the G165 4eon G2476 1is established].
5 G2532 And G393 [3rises G3588 1the G2246 2sun], G2532 and G1416 [3goes down G3588 1the G2246 2sun], G2532 and G1519 [2unto G3588 G5117 3its place G1473 G1670 1it draws].
6 G1473 In its G393 rising G1607 it goes forth G4314 to G3558 the south, G2532 and G2944 it circles G4314 to G1005 the north; G2944 [3circles G2944 5circling G4198 4going G3588 1the G4151 2wind], G2532 and G1909 at G2945 its circuits G1473 G1994 [3returns G3588 1the G4151 2wind].
7 G3956 All G3588 the G5493 rushing streams G4198 go G1519 into G3588 the G2281 sea, G2532 and G3588 the G2281 sea G3756 is not G1510.2.3 G1705 filled up. G1519 To G3588 the G5117 place G3739 where G3588 the G5493 rushing streams G4198 went, G1563 there G1473 they G1994 shall return G3588 G4198 to go again .
8 G3956 All G3588 G3056 [2words G1464.1 1wearied G3756 4shall not G1410 5be able G435 3a man] G3588 G2980 to speak; G2532 and G3756 [2shall not G1705 3be filled up G3788 1 the eye] G3588 G3708 to see, G2532 and G3756 [2shall not G4137 3be filled G3775 1 the ear] G575 of G200.2 hearing.
9 G5100 What G3588 is the thing G1096 taking place? G1473 the same thing as G3588 G1096 shall be taking place. G2532 And G5100 what G3588 is the thing G4160 being done? G1473 the same thing G3588 G4160 that shall be done; G2532 and G3756 there is not G1510.2.3 G3956 anything G4372 newly made G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun.
10 G3739 Who G2980 shall speak G2532 and G2046 shall say? G1492 Behold G3778 this G2537 is new! G1510.2.3 G2235 Already G1096 it has happened G1722 in G3588 the G165 eons G3588 to the ones G1096 having taken place G575 from G1715 before G1473 us.
11 G3756 There is no G1510.2.3 G3420 remembrance G3588 to the G4413 first things; G2532 and G1065 indeed G3588 to the G2078 last things G1096 being, G3756 there will not be G1510.8.3 G1473 a remembrance of them, G3420 G3326 with G3588 the ones G1096 being born G1519 at G3588 the G2078 latter end.
12 G1473 I G1577.2 an ecclesiastic G1096 became G935 king G1909 over G* Israel G1722 in G* Jerusalem.
13 G2532 And G1325 I gave G3588 G2588 my heart G1473 G3588 G1567 to inquire G2532 and G3588 G2679.2 to survey G1722 by G3588 G4678 wisdom G4012 concerning G3956 all things G3588 G1096 happening G5259 under G3588 the G3772 heaven. G3754 For G4048.4 [4distraction G4190 3a wicked G1325 2gave G3588 G2316 1God] G3588 to the G5207 sons G3588 G444 of men G3588 G4049 to be distracting G1722 G1473 to him.
14 G1492 I beheld G4840.2 all G3588 the G4161 actions, G3588 the ones G4160 being done G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun; G2532 and G2400 behold, G3956 all G3153 was folly G2532 and G4254.1 a resolve G4151 of spirit.
15 G1294 The thing being perverted G3756 is not G1410 able G3588 G1945.5 to be embellished. G2532 And G5303 deficiency G3756 is not G1410 able G705 to be counted.
16 G2980 I spoke G1473 G1722 in G2588 my heart G1473 G3588 G3004 to say, G2400 Behold, G1473 I G3170 was magnified, G2532 and G4369 was added G4678 wisdom G1909 over G3956 all G3739 who G1096 came G1715 before G1473 me G1722 in G* Jerusalem. G2532 And G1325 I give G2588 my heart G1473 G3588 G1097 to know G4678 wisdom G2532 and G1108 knowledge.
17 G2532 And G2588 my heart G1473 G1492 beheld G4183 much G4678 wisdom G2532 and G1108 knowledge, G3850 parables, G2532 and G1989.1 higher knowledge. G1097 [3knew G1473 2I G3754 1For] G2532 even G1065 indeed G3778 this G1510.2.3 is G4254.1 resolve G4151 of spirit.
