Vanity Of Vanities
1:1: The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2: Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
1:14: I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
2:11: Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.
2:24: There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
3:1: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
5:10: He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
5:19: Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
7:20: For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
8:17: Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea further; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.
9:16: Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
17: The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
10:11: Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.
11:10: Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.
12:13: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14: For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
