1 H1697 The words H6953 of the Preacher, H1121 the son H1732 of David, H4428 king H3389 in Jerusalem.
  2 H1892 Vanity H1892 of vanities, H559 said H6953 the Preacher, H1892 vanity H1892 of vanities; H3605 all H1892 is vanity.
  3 H4100 What H3504 profit H120 has a man H3605 of all H5999 his labor H5998 which he takes H8478 under H8121 the sun?
  4 H1755 One generation H1980 passes H1755 away, and another generation H776 comes: but the earth H5975 stays H5769 for ever.
  5 H8121 The sun H2224 also rises, H8121 and the sun H935 goes H7602 down, and hastens H4725 to his place H8033 where H2224 he arose.
  6 H7307 The wind H1980 goes H413 toward H1864 the south, H5437 and turns H6828 about to the north; H1980 it whirls H7307 about continually, and the wind H7725 returns H7725 again H5921 according H5439 to his circuits.
  7 H3605 All H5158 the rivers H1980 run H413 into H3220 the sea; H3220 yet the sea H4392 is not full; H4725 to the place H5158 from where the rivers H1980 come, H8033 thither H7725 they return H7725 again.
  8 H3605 All H1697 things H3023 are full of labor; H376 man H3808 cannot H3201 H1696 utter H5869 it: the eye H7646 is not satisfied H7200 with seeing, H3808 nor H241 the ear H4390 filled H8085 with hearing.
  9 H1961 The thing that has been, H6213 it is that which shall be; and that which is done H6213 is that which shall be done: H369 and there is no H2319 new H8478 thing under H8121 the sun.
  10 H1697 Is there any thing H559 whereof it may be said, H7200 See, H2088 this H2319 is new? H1961 it has been H3528 already H5769 of old H834 time, which H6440 was before us.
  11 H369 There is no H2146 remembrance H7223 of former H3808 things; neither H2146 shall there be any remembrance H314 of things that are to come H1961 with those that shall come H314 after.
  12 H6953 I the Preacher H4428 was king H5921 over H3478 Israel H3389 in Jerusalem.
  13 H5414 And I gave H3820 my heart H1875 to seek H8446 and search H2451 out by wisdom H5921 concerning H3605 all H6213 things that are done H8478 under H8064 heaven: H1931 this H7451 sore H6045 travail H430 has God H5414 given H1121 to the sons H120 of man H6031 to be exercised therewith.
  14 H7200 I have seen H3605 all H4639 the works H6213 that are done H8478 under H8121 the sun; H2009 and, behold, H3605 all H1892 is vanity H7469 and vexation H7307 of spirit.
  15 H5791 That which is crooked H3808 cannot H3201 H8626 be made straight: H2642 and that which is wanting H3808 cannot H3201 H4487 be numbered.
  16 H1696 I communed H3820 with my own heart, H559 saying, H2009 See, H1431 I am come to great H3254 estate, and have gotten H2451 more wisdom H5921 than H3605 all H1961 they that have been H6440 before H3389 me in Jerusalem: H3820 yes, my heart H7235 had great H7200 experience H2451 of wisdom H1847 and knowledge.
  17 H5414 And I gave H3820 my heart H3045 to know H2451 wisdom, H3045 and to know H1947 madness H5531 and folly: H3045 I perceived H2088 that this H1571 also H7475 is vexation H7307 of spirit.
  18 H7230 For in much H2451 wisdom H7230 is much H3708 grief: H3254 and he that increases H1847 knowledge H3254 increases H4341 sorrow.
