Context Readings

Those Who Have Wealth But Do Not Enjoy It Are Pitiful

3 If a man fathers a hundred, and lives many years, so that the days of his years are many, and his soul is not filled with good, and also is for him no burial; I say, a miscarriage is better than he. 4 For he comes in with vanity and goes out in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness. 5 Also he has not seen the sun, nor known anything. This one has more rest than the other.
