Ecclesiastes 3

by God (1982)

Key Passage

What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? {3:10} I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. {3:11} He hath made every [thing] beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. {3:12} I know that [there is] no good in them, but for [a man] to rejoice, and to do good in his life. {3:13} And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it [is] the gift of God.
