    9:1 For all this I considered 5414 8804 in my heart 3820 even to declare 952 8800 all this, that the righteous 6662, and the wise 2450, and their works 5652, [are] in the hand 3027 of God 430: no man 120 knoweth 3045 8802 either 1571 love 160 or hatred 8135 [by] all [that is] before 6440 them.(I considered…: Heb. I gave, or, set to my heart)

    9:2 All [things come] alike to all: [there is] one 259 event 4745 to the righteous 6662, and to the wicked 7563; to the good 2896 and to the clean 2889, and to the unclean 2931; to him that sacrificeth 2076 8802, and to him that 834 sacrificeth 2076 8802 not: as [is] the good 2896, so [is] the sinner 2398 8802; [and] he that sweareth 7650 8737, as [he] that feareth 3373 an oath 7621.

    9:3 This [is] an evil 7451 among all [things] that are done 6213 8738 under the sun 8121, that [there is] one 259 event 4745 unto all: yea, also the heart 3820 of the sons 1121 of men 120 is full 4390 8804 of evil 7451, and madness 1947 [is] in their heart 3824 while they live 2416, and after 310 that [they go] to the dead 4191 8801.

    9:4 For 4310 to him that is 3426 joined 2266 8792 8675 977 8792 to all the living 2416 there is hope 986: for a living 2416 dog 3611 is better 2896 than a dead 4191 8801 lion 738.

    9:5 For the living 2416 know 3045 8802 that they shall die 4191 8799: but the dead 4191 8801 know 3045 8802 not any thing 3972, neither have they any more a reward 7939; for the memory 2143 of them is forgotten 7911 8738.

    9:6 Also their love 160, and their hatred 8135, and their envy 7068, is now 3528 perished 6 8804; neither have they any more a portion 2506 for ever 5769 in any [thing] that is done 6213 8738 under the sun 8121.

    9:7 Go thy way 3212 8798, eat 398 8798 thy bread 3899 with joy 8057, and drink 8354 8798 thy wine 3196 with a merry 2896 heart 3820; for God 430 now 3528 accepteth 7521 8804 thy works 4639.

    9:8 Let thy garments 899 be always 6256 white 3836; and let thy head 7218 lack 2637 8799 no ointment 8081.

    9:9 Live 2416 joyfully 7200 8798 with the wife 802 whom thou lovest 157 8804 all the days 3117 of the life 2416 of thy vanity 1892, which he hath given 5414 8804 thee under the sun 8121, all the days 3117 of thy vanity 1892: for that [is] thy portion 2506 in [this] life 2416, and in thy labour 5999 which thou takest 6001 under the sun 8121.(Live…: Heb. See, or, Enjoy life)

    9:10 Whatsoever thy hand 3027 findeth 4672 8799 to do 6213 8800, do 6213 8798 [it] with thy might 3581; for [there is] no work 4639, nor device 2808, nor knowledge 1847, nor wisdom 2451, in the grave 7585, whither thou goest 1980 8802.

    9:11 I returned 7725 8804, and saw 7200 8800 under the sun 8121, that the race 4793 [is] not to the swift 7031, nor the battle 4421 to the strong 1368, neither yet bread 3899 to the wise 2450, nor yet riches 6239 to men of understanding 995 8737, nor yet favour 2580 to men of skill 3045 8802; but time 6256 and chance 6294 happeneth 7136 8799 to them all.

    9:12 For man 120 also knoweth 3045 8799 not his time 6256: as the fishes 1709 that are taken 270 8737 in an evil 7451 net 4685, and as the birds 6833 that are caught 270 8803 in the snare 6341; so 1992 [are] the sons 1121 of men 120 snared 3369 8795 in an evil 7451 time 6256, when it falleth 5307 8799 suddenly 6597 upon them.

    9:13 This 2090 wisdom 2451 have I seen 7200 8804 also under the sun 8121, and it [seemed] great 1419 unto me:

    9:14 [There was] a little 6996 city 5892, and few 4592 men 582 within it; and there came 935 8804 a great 1419 king 4428 against it, and besieged 5437 8804 it, and built 1129 8804 great 1419 bulwarks 4685 against it:

    9:15 Now there was found 4672 8804 in it a poor 4542 wise 2450 man 376, and he by his wisdom 2451 delivered 4422 8765 the city 5892; yet no man 120 remembered 2142 8804 that same poor 4542 man 376.

    9:16 Then said 559 8804 I, Wisdom 2451 [is] better 2896 than strength 1369: nevertheless the poor man's 4542 wisdom 2451 [is] despised 959 8803, and his words 1697 are not heard 8085 8737.

    9:17 The words 1697 of wise 2450 [men are] heard 8085 8737 in quiet 5183 more than the cry 2201 of him that ruleth 4910 8802 among fools 3684.

    9:18 Wisdom 2451 [is] better 2896 than weapons 3627 of war 7128: but one 259 sinner 2398 8802 destroyeth 6 8762 much 7235 8687 good 2896.
