There is no remembrance of the former [things], nor shall there be any remembrance of the latter that are to come, among those who shall come after.
For of the wise man, even as of the fool, there is no remembrance forever, seeing that in the days to come all will have been long forgotten. And how the wise man dies even as the fool!
The enemy have come to an end. They are desolate forever, and the cities which thou have overthrown. The very memory of them is perished,
For the living know that they shall die, but the dead know not anything, nor have they any more a reward, for the memory of them is forgotten.
Let them bring forth, and declare to us what shall happen. Declare ye the former things, what they are, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them, or show us things to come.
