for ever; seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be
forgotten. And how dieth the wise man? as the fool.
ECC 2:17 Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under
the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
ECC 2:18 Yea, I hated all my labour which I had taken under the sun:
because I should leave it unto the man that shall be after me.
ECC 2:19 And who knoweth whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? yet
shall he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and
wherein I have shewed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.
ECC 2:20 Therefore I went about to cause my heart to despair of all the
labour which I took under the sun.
