Ecclesiastes 6

6:1 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it
 [is] common among men:
6:2 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honor, so
 that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth,
 yet God giveth him not power to eat of it, but a stranger
 eateth it: this [is] vanity, and it [is] an evil disease.
6:3 If a man begetteth a hundred [children], and liveth many
 years, so that the days of his years are many, and his soul is
 not filled with good, and also [that] he hath no burial; I say,
 [that] an untimely birth [is] better than he.
6:4 For he cometh with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and
 his name shall be covered with darkness.
6:5 Moreover he hath not seen the sun, nor known [any thing]:
 this hath more rest than the other.
6:6 Yes, though he liveth a thousand years twice [told], yet
 hath he seen no good: do not all go to one place?
6:7 All the labor of man [is] for his mouth, and yet the
 appetite is not filled.
6:8 For what hath the wise more than the fool? what hath the
 poor, that knoweth to walk before the living?
6:9 Better [is] the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the
 desire: this [is] also vanity and vexation of spirit.
6:10 That which hath been is named already, and it is known that
 it [is] man: neither may he contend with him that is mightier
 than he.
6:11 Seeing there are many things that increase vanity, what
 [is] man the better?
6:12 For who knoweth what [is] good for man in [this] life, all
 the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for
 who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
