"Look here: today I'm going down the path that everyone on earth takes, and you know with all your hearts and souls that not a single word of all of the good things that the LORD your God spoke about you has failed to happen. Everything has been fulfilled about you not one of them has failed.

Four things on earth are small, but they are very, very wise:
What does a man gain from all of the work that he undertakes on earth?
Whatever has happened, will happen again; whatever has been done, will be done again. There is nothing new on earth.
I observed every activity done on earth. My conclusion: all of it is pointless like chasing after the wind.
Then I examined all of my accomplishments that I had brought about by my own efforts, including the work that I had labored so hard to complete and it was all pointless, like chasing after the wind, and there was nothing to be gained on earth.
So I hated life, because whatever is done on earth causes me trouble it's all pointless, like chasing after the wind.
Then I despised everything I had worked for on earth, that is, the things that I will leave to the person who will succeed me.
And who knows whether he will be wise or foolish? Either way, he will take possession of everything that I have done on earth, especially where I have excelled. This also is pointless.
So I came to be in despair about everything I had accomplished on earth.
For what does a person gain from everything that he accomplishes and from his inner life struggles that he undergoes while working on earth?
I also examined on earth: where the halls of justice were supposed to be, there was lawlessness; and where the righteous were supposed to be, there was lawlessness. 17I told myself, "God will judge both the righteous and the wicked, because there is a time set to judge every event and every work."
Next I turned to consider all kinds of oppression that exists on earth. Look at the tears of the oppressed there is no one to comfort them. Power is on the side of their oppressors; so they have no comforters.
Better than both of them is someone who has not yet been born, because he hasn't experienced evil on earth.
Then I turned to re-examine something else that is pointless on earth:
I observed everyone who lives and walks on earth, along with the youth who will take the king's place.
Don't be impulsive with your mouth nor be in a hurry to talk in God's presence. Since God is in heaven and you're on earth, keep your speech short.
I have observed a painful tragedy on earth: Wealth hoarded by its owner harms him,
Look! I observed that it is good and prudent to eat, drink, and enjoy all that is good of a person's work that he does on earth during the limited days of his life, which God gives him, for this is his allotment.
There exists another misfortune that I have observed on earth, and it is a heavy burden upon human beings:
Because many words lead to pointlessness, how do people benefit from this? 12Who knows what is best for people in this life, every day of their pointless lives that they pass through like a shadow? Who informs people on earth what will come along after them?
For there is not a single righteous man on earth who practices good and does not sin.
I observed all this, and carefully considered everything that is undertaken on earth, especially the time when someone dominates another to his detriment.
Here is a pointless thing that happens on earth: A righteous man receives what happens to the wicked, and a wicked man receives what happens to the righteous. I concluded that this, too, is pointless.
So then I recommended enjoyment of life, because it is better on earth for a man to eat, drink, and be happy, since this will stay with him throughout his struggle all the days of his life, which God grants him on earth.
When I dedicated myself to experience wisdom and to observe what is undertaken on earth even going without sleep day and night
I saw all of it as the activity of God. Frankly, a human being cannot understand what happens on earth, because however hard a man works to discover it, he will not find out. Despite what he thinks he knows, he will not be able to figure it out.
There is a tragedy that infects everything that happens on earth: a common event happens to everyone. In fact, the hearts of human beings are full of evil. Madness remains in their hearts while they live, and afterwards they join the dead.
Furthermore, their love, their hate, and their envy have been long lost. Never again will they have a part in what happens on earth.
Find joy in living with your wife whom you love every day of your pointless life that God gave you on earth, because this is your life assignment and your work to do on earth.
I considered and observed on earth the following: The race doesn't go to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor food to the wise, nor wealth to the smart, nor recognition to the skilled. Instead, timing and circumstances meet them all.
I also observed this example of wisdom on earth, and it seemed important to me:
Here's another tragedy that I've observed on earth, a kind of error that comes from an overseer:
