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 says H6953 the Preacher, H1892 vanity H1892 of vanities; H1892 all is vanity.
4 H1755 One generation H1980 passes away, H1755 and another generation H935 comes: H776 but the earth H5975 stays H5769 for ever.
5 H8121 The sun H2224 also arises, H8121 and the sun H935 goes down, H7602 and hastens H4725 to his place H2224 where he arose.
6 H7307 The wind H1980 goes H1864 toward the south, H5437 and turns about H6828 unto the north; H1980 it whirls about continually, H7307 and the wind H7725 returns again H5439 according to his circuits.
7 H5158 All the rivers H1980 run H3220 into the sea; H3220 yet the sea H4392 is not full; H4725 unto the place H5158 from from where the rivers H1980 come, H7725 there they return H3212 again.
8 H1697 All things H3023 are full of labor; H376 man H3201 cannot H1696 utter H5869 it: the eye H7646 is not satisfied H7200 with seeing, H241 nor the ear H4390 filled H8085 with hearing.
9 H6213 The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done H6213 is that which shall be done: H2319 and there is no new H8121 thing under the sun.
10 H3426 Is there H1697 any thing H559 whereof it may be said, H7200 See, H2319 this is new? H3528 it has been already H5769 of old time, H6440 which was before us.
11 H2146 There is no memory H7223 of former H2146 things; neither shall there be any memory H314 of things that are to come H314 with those that shall come after.
13 H5414 And I gave H3820 my heart H1875 to seek H8446 and search out H2451 by wisdom H6213 concerning all things that are done H8064 under heaven: H7451 this severe H6045 hardship H430 has God H5414 given H1121 to the sons H120 of man H6031 to be exercised with it.
14 H7200 I have seen H4639 all the works H6213 that are done H8121 under the sun; H1892 and, behold, all is vanity H7469 and vexation H7307 of spirit.
15 H5791 That which is crooked H3201 cannot H8626 be made straight: H2642 and that which is wanting H3201 cannot H4487 be numbered.
16 H1696 I talked H3820 with my own heart, H559 saying, H1431 Behold, I am come to great estate, H3254 and have gotten H2451 more wisdom H6440 than all they that have been 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 wickedness: H3045 I perceived H1571 that this H7475 also is vexation H7307 of spirit.
