1 G2036 I said G1473 G1722 in G2588 my heart, G1473 G1204 Come now G1211 indeed, G3985 I will test G1473 you G1722 with G2167 gladness, G2532 and therefore G1492 know G1722 G18 good! G2532 And G2400 behold, G2532 also G1065 even G3778 this G3153 is folly.
2 G3588 To G1071 laughter, G2036 I said, G4064.1 Deviation. G2532 and G3588 to G2167 gladness, G5100 Why G3778 do you do this? G4160
3 G2532 And G2679.2 I surveyed G1487 if G3588 G2588 my heart G1473 G1670 would draw G5613 [2 with G3631 3wine G3588 G4561 1my flesh]; G1473 G2532 and G2588 my heart G1473 G3594 guided G1473 me G1722 in G4678 wisdom; G2532 and G3588 G2902 to hold G1909 upon G2167 gladness G2193 until G3739 G1492 I should see G4169 what kind was G3588 the G18 good G3588 to the G5207 sons G3588 G444 of men, G3739 which G4160 they shall do G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun G706 [2numbered G2250 3days G2222 4of life G1473 1 with their].
4 G3170 I magnified G4161 my action; G1473 G3618 I built G1473 to myself G3624 houses; G5452 I planted G1473 my G290 vineyards.
5 G4160 I made G1473 to myself G2779 gardens G2532 and G3857 parks; G2532 and G5452 I planted G1722 in G1473 them G3586 a tree G3956 for every G2590 fruit.
6 G4160 I made G1473 to myself G2861 pools G5204 of waters G3588 G4222 to water G1909 by G1473 them G1409.1 the grove G985 bursting forth G3586 rees.
7 G2932 I acquired G1401 manservants, G2532 and G3814 maidservants; G2532 and G3615.3 native-born servants G1096 were born G1473 to me; G2532 and G1065 indeed G2934.3 a possession G1009.3 [2herd G2532 3and G4168 4flock G4183 1of a great] G1096 became G1473 to me G5228 above G3956 all G3588 the G1096 ones being G1715 before G1473 me G1722 in G* Jerusalem.
8 G4863 I brought together G1473 to myself G2532 also G1065 indeed G694 silver, G2532 and G1065 indeed G5553 gold, G2532 and G4040.2 prized possessions G935 of kings G2532 and G3588 of the G5561 places. G4160 I prepared G1473 to myself G103 male singers G2532 and G103 female singers, G2532 and G1792.1 amusements G5207 of the sons G3588 G444 of man; G3632.2 and male wine servers G2532 and G3632.1 female wine servers.
9 G2532 And G3170 I became magnified, G2532 and G4369 proceeded G4678 in wisdom G3844 past G3956 all G3588 the ones G1096 being G1715 before G1473 me G1722 in G* Jerusalem; G2532 and G1065 indeed G4678 my wisdom G1473 G2476 was established G1473 to me.
10 G2532 And G3956 all G3739 whatever G154 [2asked for G3588 G3788 1my eyes] G1473 G3756 was not G5306.2 at a distance G575 from G1473 them. G3756 I did not G617.1 detain G3588 G2588 my heart G1473 G575 from G3956 any G2167 gladness, G3754 for G2588 my heart G1473 G2165 was gladdened G1722 in G3956 all G3449 my effort. G1473 G2532 And G3778 this G1096 was G3310 my portion G1473 G575 of G3956 all G3449 my effort. G1473
11 G2532 And G1914 I looked G1473 G1722 upon G3956 all G4161 my actions, G1473 G3739 the things which G4160 I did G3588 G5495 by my hands, G1473 G2532 and G1722 on G3449 the effort G3739 in which G3449.1 I made an effort G3588 G4160 to do. G2532 And G2400 behold, G3588 G3956 all things G3153 were folly G2532 and G4254.1 a resolve G4151 of spirit, G2532 and G3756 there is no G1510.2.3 G4050 advantage G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun.
12 G2532 And G1914 I looked around G1473 G3588 G1492 to behold G4678 wisdom G2532 and G4064.1 deviation G2532 and G877 folly; G3754 for G5100 who G444 is the man G3739 who G1904 will come G3694 after G3588 G1012 counsel, G4862 with G3588 G3745 as much as G4160 they did G1473 it?
13 G2532 And G1492 I beheld G1473 G3754 that G1510.2.3 there is G4050 an advantage G3588 to G4678 wisdom G5228 over G3588 G877 folly; G5613 as G4050 the advantage G3588 of the G5457 light G5228 over G3588 the G4655 darkness.
14 G3588 The G4680 wise man -- G3588 G3788 his eyes G1473 G1722 are in G2776 his head; G1473 G2532 but G3588 the G878 fool G1722 [2in G4655 3darkness G4198 1goes]. G2532 And G1097 I knew, G2532 even G1065 indeed G1473 I, G3754 that G4876.2 [2event G1520 1one] G4876 shall meet with G3588 G3956 all G1473 them.
15 G2532 And G2036 I said G1473 G1722 in G2588 my heart, G1473 G5613 As G4876.2 the event G3588 of the G878 fool is, G2532 even G1065 indeed G1473 to me G4876 it shall meet up with G1473 me; G2532 and G2444 why G4679 have I discerned wisdom? G1473 G3588 And this extra G4053 G2980 I said G1722 in G2588 my heart, G1473 G1360 because G878 the fool G1537 from out of G4051 abundance G2980 speaks, G3754 for G2532 even G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly.
16 G3754 For G3756 there is no G1510.2.3 G3420 remembrance G3588 of the G4680 wise man G3326 with G3588 the G878 fool G1519 in G3588 the G165 eon; G2530 in so far as G2235 already G3588 the G2250 [2days G3588 G2064 1coming] G3588 G3956 all things G1950 are forgotten; G2532 and G4459 how G599 shall [3die G3588 1the G4680 2wise man] G3326 with G3588 the G878 fool?
17 G2532 And G3404 I was detested G4862 with G3588 G2222 life; G3754 for G4190 evil G1909 was upon G1473 me -- G3588 the G4161 action G3588 G4160 of doing a thing G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun. G3754 For G3956 all G3153 is folly G2532 and G4254.1 a resolve G4151 of spirit.
18 G2532 And G3404 I detested G1473 G4840.2 all G3449 my effort G1473 G3739 which G1473 I G3449.1 made an effort G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun. G3754 For G863 I must leave G1473 it G3588 to the G444 man G3588 G1096 coming G3326 after G1473 me.
19 G2532 And G5100 who G1492 knows G1487 if G4680 he will be a wise man G1510.8.3 G2228 or G878 a fool? G2532 And G1487 if G1850 he exercises authority G1722 in G3956 all G3449 my effort G1473 G3739 in which G3449.1 I made an effort in, G2532 and G3739 in which G4679 I gained discernment G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun. G2532 Even G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly.
20 G2532 And G1994 I turned G1473 G3588 G657 to dismiss G3588 G2588 my heart G1473 G1909 upon G3956 all G3449 effort G3739 in which G3449.1 I made an effort G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun.
21 G3754 For G1510.2.3 there is G444 a man G3754 that G3449 made his effort G1473 G1722 in G4678 wisdom, G2532 and G1722 in G1108 knowledge, G2532 and G1722 in G406.1 courage; G2532 and G444 a man G3739 in whom G3756 did not G3449.1 make an effort -- G1722 in G1473 him G1325 he will give G1473 to him G3310 his portion. G1473 G2532 And G1065 indeed G3778 this is G3153 folly G2532 and G4189 [2wickedness G3173 1great]
22 G1096 What happens G3588 to the G444 man G1722 in G3956 all G3449 his effort, G1473 G2532 and G1722 in G4254.1 resolve G2588 of his heart G1473 G3739 in which G1473 he G3449.1 makes an effort G5259 under G3588 the G2246 sun?
23 G3754 For G3956 in all G3588 G2250 his days G1473 G217.3 are pains G2532 and G2372 rage G4048.4 of his distraction; G1473 G2532 and indeed G1065 G1722 in G3571 night G3756 [3does not G2837 4go to bed G3588 G2588 2heart G1473 1his]. G2532 And G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly. G1510.2.3
24 G3756 There is not G1510.2.3 G18 a good thing G444 to man G1508 unless G3739 G2068 to eat G2532 and G3739 G4095 to drink, G2532 and G3739 G1166 to show G3588 G5590 his soul G1473 G18 good G1722 in G3449 his effort. G1473 G2532 And G1065 indeed G3778 this G1492 I knew, G1473 G3754 that G575 [2from G5495 3 the hand G3588 G2316 4of God G1510.2.3 1it is].
25 G3754 For G5100 who G2068 shall eat, G2532 and G5100 who G4095 shall drink G3926.1 besides G1473 him?
26 G3754 For G3588 to the G444 man, G3588 to the one G18 good G4253 before G4383 his face, G1473 G1325 he gave G4678 wisdom, G2532 and G1108 knowledge, G2532 and G2167 gladness. G2532 And G3588 to the one G264 sinning, G1325 he gave G4048.4 distraction G3588 G4369 to be added G2532 and G3588 G4863 to bring together; G3588 so as G1325 to give G3588 to the G18 good man G4253 before G4383 the face G3588 G2316 of God. G3754 For G2532 even G1065 indeed G3778 this G3153 is folly G2532 and G4254.1 resolve G4151 of spirit.
