1 Composition of Qoheleth son of David, king in Jerusalem.

2 Sheer futility, Qoheleth says. Sheer futility: everything is futile!
Rom 8:20  Eccl 12:8  Ps 144:4  Ps 39:5-6  Eccl 5:10  Eccl 2:11  Eccl 2:17 

3 What profit can we show for all our toil, toiling under the sun?
Eccl 2:22  Eccl 3:9  Eccl 5:16  Eccl 2:11  John 6:27  Mark 8:36-37  Prov 23:4-5 

4 A generation goes, a generation comes, yet the earth stands firm for ever.
Ps 104:5  Matt 24:35  Zech 1:5  2Pet 3:10-13  Eccl 6:12  Ps 90:9-10  Ps 102:24-28 

5 The sun rises, the sun sets; then to its place it speeds and there it rises.
Hab 3:11  Ps 19:4-6  Gen 8:22  Jer 33:20  Josh 10:13-14  Ps 42:1  Ps 89:36-37 

6 Southward goes the wind, then turns to the north; it turns and turns again; then back to its circling goes the wind.
John 3:8  Eccl 11:5  Job 37:9  Job 37:17  Jonah 1:4  Matt 7:24  Matt 7:27 

7 Into the sea go all the rivers, and yet the sea is never filled, and still to their goal the rivers go.
Job 38:10-11  Ps 104:6-9 

8 All things are wearisome. No one can say that eyes have not had enough of seeing, ears their fill of hearing.
Prov 27:20  Eccl 4:8  Matt 11:28  Eccl 4:1-4  Eccl 5:10-11  Rev 7:16-17  Eccl 2:11 

9 What was, will be again, what has been done, will be done again, and there is nothing new under the sun!
Eccl 3:15  Eccl 6:10  Eccl 2:12  Isa 43:19  Jer 31:22  Rev 21:1  Rev 21:5 

10 Take anything which people acclaim as being new: it existed in the centuries preceding us.
Acts 7:51  Luke 17:26-30  Matt 5:12  Matt 23:30-32  1Thess 2:14-16  2Tim 3:8 

11 No memory remains of the past, and so it will be for the centuries to come -- they will not be remembered by their successors.
Eccl 2:16  Eccl 9:5  Isa 41:22-26  Isa 42:9  Ps 9:6 

12 I, Qoheleth, have reigned over Israel in Jerusalem.
Eccl 1:1  1Kgs 4:1-19 

13 Wisely I have applied myself to investigation and exploration of everything that happens under heaven. What a wearisome task God has given humanity to keep us busy!
Eccl 3:10  Eccl 1:17  Gen 3:19  Eccl 7:25  Eccl 8:16-17  1Tim 4:15  Eccl 2:23 

14 I have seen everything that is done under the sun: how futile it all is, mere chasing after the wind!
Eccl 2:11  Eccl 2:17  Eccl 2:26  Eccl 6:9  Eccl 1:17-18  Eccl 4:4  1Kgs 4:30-32 

15 What is twisted cannot be straightened, what is not there cannot be counted.
Eccl 7:12-13  Isa 40:4  Eccl 3:14  Dan 4:35  Job 11:6  Job 34:29  Lam 3:37 

16 I thought to myself: I have acquired a greater stock of wisdom than anyone before me in Jerusalem. I myself have mastered every kind of wisdom and science.
Eccl 2:9  1Kgs 4:30  1Kgs 10:7  1Kgs 3:12-13  1Kgs 10:23-24  2Chr 1:10-12  2Chr 2:12 

17 I have applied myself to understanding philosophy and science, stupidity and folly, and I now realise that all this too is chasing after the wind.
Eccl 2:3  1Thess 5:21  Eccl 2:10-12  Eccl 1:13-14  Eccl 7:23-25 

18 Much wisdom, much grief; the more knowledge, the more sorrow.
1Cor 3:18-20  Eccl 12:12-13  Job 28:28  Eccl 2:15  Eccl 2:23  Eccl 7:16  Jas 3:13-17
