“But those riches perish by euill trauell; and he begetteth a sonne, and there is nothing in his hand.”
King James Version (KJV)
11. When goods increase, they are increased that eate them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, sauing the beholding of them with their eyes? 12. The sleepe of a labouring man is sweete, whether he eate little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleepe. 13. There is a sore euill which I haue seene vnder the Sun, namely riches kept for the owners therof to their hurt. 14. But those riches perish by euill trauell; and he begetteth a sonne, and there is nothing in his hand. 15. As he came forth of his mothers wombe, naked shall he returne to goe as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand. 16. And this also is a sore euill, that in all points as he came, so shall hee goe: and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the winde? 17. All his dayes also hee eateth in darkenesse, and he hath much sorrowe, and wrath with his sicknesse.
