1 G2532 And G1994 I turned G1473 G2532 and G1492 I beheld G4840.2 all G3588 the G4811.2 extortions, G3588 the ones G1096 happening G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun. G2532 And G2400 behold, G1144 the tear G3588 of the ones G4811 being extorted, G2532 and G3756 there is not G1510.2.3 G1473 one comforting them. G3588 G3870 G2532 And G575 by G5495 the hand G4811 of ones extorting G1473 them G2479 was by strength, G2532 and G3756 there is not G1510.2.3 G1473 one comforting them. G3870
2 G2532 And G1867 I praised G1473 G4840.2 all G3588 of the ones G2348 having died G3588 of the ones G2235 already G599 dying G5228 more than G3588 the G2198 living, G3745 as many as G1473 G2198 live G2193 until G3588 the G3568 present.
3 G2532 And G18 better G5228 above G3588 G1417 these two G3778 G3748 which G3768 not yet G1096 was born, G3739 which G3756 knew not G1492 G4840.2 all G3588 the G4161 [2action G3588 G4190 1evil] G3588 G4160 being done G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun.
4 G2532 And G1492 I beheld G1473 G4840.2 all G3588 the G3449 effort, G2532 and G4840.2 all G406.1 courage G3588 G4161 of action; G3754 for G1473 the same G2205 zeal G435 of man G575 is from G3588 G2083 his companion. G1473 G2532 And G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly G2532 and G4254.1 resolve G4151 of spirit.
5 G3588 The G878 fool G4033.2 embraces G3588 G5495 his hands, G1473 G2532 and G2068 eats G3588 G4561 his flesh. G1473
6 G18 Better G4138 [2full G1404.1 1a handful] G372 of rest, G5228 than G4138 [3full G1417 1two G1404.1 2handfuls] G3449 of trouble G2532 and G4254.1 resolve G4151 of spirit.
7 G2532 And G1994 I turned, G1473 G2532 and G1492 I saw G3153 folly G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun.
8 G1510.2.3 There is G1520 one alone, G2532 and G3756 there is not G1510.2.3 G1208 a second; G2532 and G1065 indeed, G5207 [2son G2532 3nor G1065 4indeed G80 5a brother G3756 1there is no] G1510.2.3 G1473 to him. G2532 And G3756 there is no G1510.2.3 G4009.1 limit G3588 G3956 to all G3449 his effort; G1473 G2532 and G1065 indeed G3788 his eye G1473 G3756 is not G1705 satisfied G4149 of riches; G2532 and saying, G5100 Why G1473 do I G3449.1 make an effort, G2532 and G4733.1 deprive G3588 G5590 my soul G1473 G575 of G19 goodness? G2532 And G1065 indeed, G3778 this G3153 [2folly G2532 3and G4048.4 5distraction G4190 4an evil G1510.2.3 1is].
9 G18 Better G3588 the G1417 two G5228 than G3588 the G1520 one, G3739 in which G1510.2.3 there is G1473 to them G3408 [2wage G18 1a good] G1722 in G3449 their effort. G1473
10 G3754 For G1437 if G4098 they should fall, G3588 the G1520 one G1453 shall raise G3588 G3353 his partner. G1473 G2532 But G3759 woe G1473 to him, G3588 to the G1520 one, G3752 whenever G4098 he should fall G2532 and G3361 there should not be G1510.3 G1208 a second G3588 G1453 to raise G1473 him.
11 G2532 And G1437 if G2837 [2should go to bed G3588 G1417 1two] G2532 and G2329 heat G1473 themselves, G2532 then G3588 the G1520 one, G4459 how G2328 shall he heat himself ?
12 G2532 And G1437 if G1947.1 one prevails against G3588 the G1520 one, G3588 the G1417 two G2476 shall stand G2713 against G1473 him. G2532 And G3588 the G4683.1 [2cord G3588 G1789.1 1three-stranded] G3756 shall not G5030 be quickly G640.2 ripped apart.
13 G18 Better G3816 [4child G3993 1a needy G2532 2and G4680 3wise], G5228 than G935 [4king G4245 1an older G2532 2and G878 3foolish] G3739 who G3756 does not G1097 know G3588 G4337 to take heed G2089 any longer.
14 G3754 For G1537 from out of G3624 the house G3588 of the G1198 prisoners G1831 he shall come forth G3588 G936 to reign, G3754 for G2532 even G1065 indeed G1722 in G932 his kingdom G1473 G1096 he was G3993 needy.
15 G1492 I beheld G4840.2 all G3588 of the G2198 living, G3588 of the ones G4043 walking G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun, G3326 with G3588 the G3495 young G3588 of the G1208 second generation G3739 who G2476 will stand G473 in place G1473 of him.
16 G3756 There is no G1510.2.3 G4009.1 limit G3588 G3956 to all G2992 the people, G3588 G3956 to all G3745 as many as G1096 was G1715 before G1473 them; G2532 and G1065 indeed, G3588 the G2078 last G3756 shall not G2165 be glad G1722 in G1473 himself. G3754 For G2532 even G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly G2532 and G4254.1 resolve G4151 of spirit.
