    King James Bible - Ecclesiastes 11:6

    In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.

    World English Bible

    In the morning sow your seed, and in the
    evening don't withhold your hand; for you don't know which will prosper, whether this or that, or whether they both will be equally good.

    Douay-Rheims - Ecclesiastes 11:6

    In the morning sow thy seed, and In the
    evening let not thy hand cease: for thou knowest not which may rather spring up, this or that: and if both together, it shall be the better.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    In the morning sow thy seed, and in the
    evening withhold not thy hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.

    Original Hebrew

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:6

    Por la mañana siembra tu simiente, y a la tarde no dejes reposar tu mano; porque tú no sabes cuál es lo mejor, si esto o lo otro, o si ambas son igualmente buenas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ecclesiastes 11:6

    Verse 6. In the morning sow thy
    seed - Be ready at all times to show mercy; begin in the morning, continue till the evening. Thou knowest not the most worthy object; it is enough that God knoweth; and if thy motive be good, he will applaud and reward thee; not according to the worthiness or unworthiness of the object of thy charity, but according to the motive which induced thee to relieve him.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. In the morning sow thy
    seed , etc.] Do all good works early and diligently, which is expressed by sowing in righteousness, ( Hosea 10:12); particularly alms deeds, often signified by sowing seed, ( <19B209> Psalm 112:9) ( 2 Corinthians 9:6-10); this should be in the morning of youth, that persons may be inured to it betimes as Obadiah was; and in the morning of prosperity, as soon as ever Providence smiles on men, and puts it into the power of their hands, who should honour the Lord with the firstfruits of their increase; and in the evening withhold not thine hand ; from sowing seed, from doing good, particularly acts of charity, in the evening of old age, as Jarchi, like old Barzillai; an age in which men are apt to be more tenacious and covetous, and withhold more than is meet; yea, in the evening of adversity do not leave off doing good as much as can be; but do as the Macedonian churches, whose deep poverty abounded to the riches of their liberality in a great trial of affliction, ( 2 Corinthians 8:2); in short, good is to be done at all times, as opportunity offers, throughout the whole of life, and in all conditions and circumstances; for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that ; the seed sown in the morning or in the evening, which good work shall best succeed; therefore do both, try all ways, make use of all opportunities; or whether they both [shall be] alike good ; acceptable to God, and useful to men; and if so, a man will have no occasion to repent of what he has done both in youth and old age.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Exhortation to liberality. (Eccl. 11:1-6) An admonition to prepare for
    death, and to young persons to be religious. (Eccl. 11:7-10)

    Eccl. 11:1-6 Solomon presses the rich to do good to others. Giv freely, though it may seem thrown away and lost. Give to many. Excus not thyself with the good thou hast done, from the good thou has further to do. It is not lost, but well laid out. We have reason to expect evil, for we are born to trouble; it is wisdom to do good in the day of prosperity. Riches cannot profit us, if we do not benefi others. Every man must labour to be a blessing to that place where the providence of God casts him. Wherever we are, we may find good work to do, if we have but hearts to do it. If we magnify every littl difficulty, start objections, and fancy hardships, we shall never go on, much less go through with our work. Winds and clouds of tribulatio are, in God's hands, designed to try us. God's work shall agree with his word, whether we see it or not. And we may well trust God to provide for us, without our anxious, disquieting cares. Be not weary in well-doing, for in due season, in God's time, you shall reap, Gal. 6:9.

    Eccl. 11:7-10 Life is sweet to bad men, because they have their portio in this life; it is sweet to good men, because it is the time of preparation for a better; it is sweet to all. Here is a caution to think of death, even when life is most sweet. Solomon makes a effecting address to young persons. They would desire opportunity to pursue every pleasure. Then follow your desires, but be assured tha God will call you into judgment. How many give loose to every appetite and rush into every vicious pleasure! But God registers every one of their sinful thoughts and desires, their idle words and wicked words If they would avoid remorse and terror, if they would have hope an comfort on a dying bed, if they would escape misery here and hereafter let them remember the vanity of youthful pleasures. That Solomon mean to condemn the pleasures of sin is evident. His object is to draw the young to purer and more lasting joys. This is not the language of on grudging youthful pleasures, because he can no longer partake of them but of one who has, by a miracle of mercy, been brought back in safety He would persuade the young from trying a course whence so few return If the young would live a life of true happiness, if they would secur happiness hereafter, let them remember their Creator in the days of their youth __________________________________________________________________
