7 Go, eat your bread with pleasure, and drink your wine with a cheerful heart, for God has already accepted your works.(A) 8 Let your clothes be white all the time, and never let oil be lacking on your head.(B) 9 Enjoy life with the wife you love all the days of your fleeting(a) life,(C) which has been given to you under the sun, all your fleeting days. For that is your portion in life and in your struggle(D) under the sun.
