Ecclesiastes 5:16

“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?”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiastes 5:16

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. 18. ¶ Behold that which I haue seene: It is good and comely for one to eate and to drinke, and to enioy the good of all his labour that he taketh vnder the sunne, all the dayes of his life, which God giueth him: for it is his portion. 19. Euery man also to whom God hath giuen riches and wealth, and hath giuen him power to eate thereof, and to take his portion, and to reioyce in his labour; this is the gift of God.
