    2:1 I said 559 8804 in mine heart 3820, Go to now 3212 8798, I will prove 5254 8762 thee with mirth 8057, therefore enjoy 7200 8798 pleasure 2896: and, behold, this also [is] vanity 1892.

    2:2 I said 559 8804 of laughter 7814, [It is] mad 1984 8781: and of mirth 8057, What 2090 doeth 6213 8802 it?

    2:3 I sought 8446 8804 in mine heart 3820 to give 4900 8800 myself 1320 unto wine 3196, yet acquainting 5090 8802 mine heart 3820 with wisdom 2451; and to lay hold 270 8800 on folly 5531, till I might see 7200 8799 what [was] that good 2896 for the sons 1121 of men 120, which they should do 6213 8799 under the heaven 8064 all 4557 the days 3117 of their life 2416.(to give…: Heb. to draw my flesh with wine)(all…: Heb. the number of the days of their life)

    2:4 I made me great 1431 8689 works 4639; I builded 1129 8804 me houses 1004; I planted 5193 8804 me vineyards 3754:

    2:5 I made 6213 8804 me gardens 1593 and orchards 6508, and I planted 5193 8804 trees 6086 in them of all [kind of] fruits 6529:

    2:6 I made 6213 8804 me pools 1295 of water 4325, to water 8248 8687 therewith the wood 3293 that bringeth forth 6779 8802 trees 6086:

    2:7 I got 7069 8804 [me] servants 5650 and maidens 8198, and had servants born 1121 in my house 1004; also I had great 7235 8687 possessions 4735 of great 1241 and small cattle 6629 above all that were in Jerusalem 3389 before 6440 me:(servants born…: Heb. sons of my house)

    2:8 I gathered 3664 8804 me also silver 3701 and gold 2091, and the peculiar treasure 5459 of kings 4428 and of the provinces 4082: I gat 6213 8804 me men singers 7891 8802 and women singers 7891 8802, and the delights 8588 of the sons 1121 of men 120, [as] musical instruments 7705 7705, and that of all sorts.(musical…: Heb. musical instrument and instruments)

    2:9 So I was great 1431 8804, and increased 3254 8689 more than all that were before 6440 me in Jerusalem 3389: also my wisdom 2451 remained 5975 8804 with me.

    2:10 And whatsoever mine eyes 5869 desired 7592 8804 I kept 680 8804 not from them, I withheld 4513 8804 not my heart 3820 from any joy 8057; for my heart 3820 rejoiced 8056 in all my labour 5999: and this was my portion 2506 of all my labour 5999.

    2:11 Then I looked 6437 8804 on all the works 4639 that my hands 3027 had wrought 6213 8804, and on the labour 5999 that I had laboured 5998 8804 to do 6213 8800: and, behold, all [was] vanity 1892 and vexation 7469 of spirit 7307, and [there was] no profit 3504 under the sun 8121.

    2:12 And I turned 6437 8804 myself to behold 7200 8800 wisdom 2451, and madness 1947, and folly 5531: for what [can] the man 120 [do] that cometh 935 8799 after 310 the king 4428? [even] that which hath been already 3528 done 6213 8804.(even…: or, in those things which have been already done)

    2:13 Then I saw 7200 8804 that 3426 wisdom 2451 excelleth 3504 folly 5531, as far as light 216 excelleth 3504 darkness 2822.(that…: Heb. that there is an excellency in wisdom more than in folly, etc)

    2:14 The wise man's 2450 eyes 5869 [are] in his head 7218; but the fool 3684 walketh 1980 8802 in darkness 2822: and I myself perceived 3045 8804 also that one 259 event 4745 happeneth 7136 8799 to them all.

    2:15 Then 227 said 559 8804 I in my heart 3820, As it happeneth 4745 to the fool 3684, so it happeneth 7136 8799 even to me 1571; and why was I then more 3148 wise 2449 8804? Then I said 1696 8765 in my heart 3820, that this also [is] vanity 1892.(happeneth even…: Heb. happeneth to me, even to me)

    2:16 For [there is] no remembrance 2146 of the wise 2450 more than 5973 of the fool 3684 for ever 5769; seeing that which now 3528 [is] in the days 3117 to come 935 8802 shall all be forgotten 7911 8738. And how dieth 4191 8799 the wise 2450 [man]? as the fool 3684.

    2:17 Therefore I hated 8130 8804 life 2416; because the work 4639 that is wrought 6213 8738 under the sun 8121 [is] grievous 7451 unto me: for all [is] vanity 1892 and vexation 7469 of spirit 7307.

    2:18 Yea, I hated 8130 8804 all my labour 5999 which I had taken 6001 under the sun 8121: because I should leave 3240 8686 it unto the man 120 that shall be after 310 me.(taken: Heb. laboured)

    2:19 And who knoweth 3045 8802 whether he shall be a wise 2450 [man] or a fool 5530? yet shall he have rule 7980 8799 over all my labour 5999 wherein I have laboured 5998 8804, and wherein I have shewed myself wise 2449 8804 under the sun 8121. This [is] also vanity 1892.

    2:20 Therefore I went about 5437 8804 to cause 2976 0 my heart 3820 to despair 2976 8763 of all the labour 5999 which I took 5998 8804 under the sun 8121.

    2:21 For there is 3426 a man 120 whose labour 5999 [is] in wisdom 2451, and in knowledge 1847, and in equity 3788; yet to a man 120 that hath not laboured 5998 8804 therein shall he leave 5414 8799 it [for] his portion 2506. This also [is] vanity 1892 and a great 7227 evil 7451.(leave: Heb. give)

    2:22 For what hath 1933 8802 man 120 of all his labour 5999, and of the vexation 7475 of his heart 3820, wherein 1931 he hath laboured 6001 under the sun 8121?

    2:23 For all his days 3117 [are] sorrows 4341, and his travail 6045 grief 3708; yea, his heart 3820 taketh not rest 7901 8804 in the night 3915. This is also vanity 1892.

    2:24 [There is] nothing better 2896 for a man 120, [than] that he should eat 398 8799 and drink 8354 8804, and [that] he should make his soul 5315 enjoy 7200 8689 good 2896 in his labour 5999. This 2090 also I saw 7200 8804, that it [was] from the hand 3027 of God 430.(should make…: or, delight his senses)

    2:25 For who can eat 398 8799, or who else can hasten 2363 8799 [hereunto], more 2351 than I?

    2:26 For [God] giveth 5414 8804 to a man 120 that [is] good 2896 in his sight 6440 wisdom 2451, and knowledge 1847, and joy 8057: but to the sinner 2398 8802 he giveth 5414 8804 travail 6045, to gather 622 8800 and to heap up 3664 8800, that he may give 5414 8800 to [him that is] good 2896 before 6440 God 430. This also [is] vanity 1892 and vexation 7469 of spirit 7307.(in his…: Heb. before him)
