Cast16 thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find4 it after many days.
Give3 a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest4 not what evil shall be upon the earth.
If the clouds be full11 of rain, they empty55 [themselves] upon the earth: and if the tree fall4 toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth,4 there it shall be.4
He that observeth6 the wind shall not sow;4 and he that regardeth6 the clouds shall not reap.4
As thou knowest6 not what [is] the way of the spirit, [nor] how the bones [do grow] in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest4 not the works of God who maketh4 all.
In the morning sow3 thy seed, and in the evening withhold55 not thine hand: for thou knowest6 not whether shall prosper,4 either this or that, or whether they both [shall be] alike good.
Truly the light [is] sweet, and a pleasant [thing it is] for the eyes to behold2 the sun:
But if a man live4 many53 years, [and] rejoice4 in them all; yet let him remember4 the days of darkness; for they shall be many.53 All that cometh1 [is] vanity.
Rejoice,3 O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer55 thee in the days of thy youth, and walk16 in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know3 thou, that for all these [things] God will bring55 thee into judgment.
Therefore remove54 sorrow from thy heart, and put away54 evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth [are] vanity.
