1 H1697 The words H6953 of the Preacher, H1121 the son H1732 of David, H4428 king H3389 of Jerusalem.
2 H1892 Vanity H1892 of vanities, H559 [H8804] saith H6953 the Preacher, H1892 vanity H1892 of vanities; H1892 all is vanity.
3 H3504 What profit H120 hath a man H5999 of all his labour H5998 [H8799] which he taketh H8121 under the sun?
4 H1755 One generation H1980 [H8802] passeth away, H1755 and another generation H935 H935 [H8802] cometh: H776 but the earth H5975 [H8802] abideth H5769 for ever.
5 H8121 The sun H2224 [H8804] also riseth, H8121 and the sun H935 [H8804] goeth down, H7602 [H8802] and hasteth H4725 to his place H2224 [H8802] where he arose.
6 H7307 The wind H1980 [H8802] goeth H1864 toward the south, H5437 [H8802] and turneth about H6828 to the north; H1980 [H8802] it whirleth about continually, H7307 and the wind H7725 [H8804] returneth again H5439 according to its circuits.
7 H5158 All the rivers H1980 [H8802] run H3220 into the sea; H3220 yet the sea H4392 is not full; H4725 to the place H5158 from which the rivers H1980 [H8802] come, H7725 [H8802] there they return H3212 [H8800] again.
8 H1697 All things H3023 are full of labour; H376 man H3201 [H8799] cannot H1696 [H8763] utter H5869 it: the eye H7646 [H8799] is not satisfied H7200 [H8800] with seeing, H241 nor the ear H4390 [H8735] filled H8085 [H8800] with hearing.
9 H6213 [H8738] The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done H6213 [H8735] 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 [H8799] of which it may be said, H7200 [H8798] See, H2319 this is new? H3528 it hath been already H5769 of old time, H6440 which was before us.
11 H2146 There is no remembrance H7223 of former H2146 things; neither shall there be any remembrance H314 of things that are to come H314 with those that shall come after.
13 H5414 [H8804] And I gave H3820 my heart H1875 [H8800] to seek H8446 [H8800] and search out H2451 by wisdom H6213 [H8738] concerning all things that are done H8064 under heaven: H7451 this grievous H6045 labour H430 hath God H5414 [H8804] given H1121 to the sons H120 of man H6031 [H8800] to be exercised with it.
14 H7200 [H8804] I have seen H4639 all the works H6213 [H8738] that are done H8121 under the sun; H1892 and, behold, all is vanity H7469 and vexation H7307 of spirit.
15 H5791 [H8794] That which is crooked H3201 [H8799] cannot H8626 [H8800] be made straight: H2642 and that which is lacking H3201 [H8799] cannot H4487 [H8736] be numbered.
16 H1696 [H8765] I spoke H3820 to my own heart, H559 [H8800] saying, H1431 [H8689] Lo, I have come to great estate, H3254 [H8689] and have gained H2451 more wisdom H6440 than all they that have been before H3389 me in Jerusalem: H3820 and my heart H7235 [H8687] had great H7200 [H8804] experience H2451 of wisdom H1847 and knowledge.
17 H5414 [H8799] And I gave H3820 my heart H3045 [H8800] to know H2451 wisdom, H3045 [H8800] and to know H1947 madness H5531 and folly: H3045 [H8804] I perceived H1571 that this H7475 also is vexation H7307 of spirit.
